    • Conquering Ear Mites Naturally

      ear mite remedy Ear mites are a common annoyance in pets; Here is a simple home remedy for removing those nasty little pests and keeping your favorite feline happy . . .
      Apply several drops of Corn Oil to a cotton ball and gently massage into kitty's ear. Your feline friend may protest, if so, you can gently wrap her up in a soft towel. Repeat once daily for 3 days. The corn oil will soothe the irritated ears whilst smothering the nasty mites.

        I have heard and used Mineral Oil also works. I have used the cheap brand of baby oil and a Washed out medication syringe, one you used to give animals liquid medicine and use a couple of drops in their ears. Rub it in and it works like a charm.

        I also do this for my little dog. works great, you should message the out side of the ear on dogs to make sure it gets all the way down,

        Could you use Olive Oil in place of Corn Oil? I would think the way it works is by suffocating the mites. I have plenty of Olive oil and use it in my own ears to soften wax for easy cleaning.
