EAR MITES IN CATS: I have adopted ferral cats and have fought ear mites for the last three years, non stop. I have used all of the vet prescribed, guarenteed remedies out there. Nothing has been succesful, the whole colony could not be treated. I have learned to make friends with the animal first before attemepting TX. which has prolonged the nasty infection in my other pets.
Washing your hands or wearing gloves and changing inbetween patients is critical to prevent cross contaimination. My vet also said it was excellent to use tea tree oil for it's anti viral property. I'm glad to find this web site and am excited to go research the essential oil toxicity and the Diatmaceous earth cutting action from "glass" byproduct. Meanwhile I'll be hitting the pantry!. Jacque
