Since mites are easily transferred between pets, it is best if all pets in the household received simultaneous treatment. Most types of mites do not survive long off the pets, so the treatment of the house and the yard is usually not necessary. As mentioned earlier, heavy and chronic ear mites infestation will cause secondary bacterial infection and otitis externa.
Tresaderm® had proven efficacy to treat ear mites on top of the treatment for secondary infection and otitis externa cause by ear mites. Use Tresaderm® as primary treatment of chronic ear mite infestation together with the treatment of secondary bacterial infection and otitis externa. Instill 5 to 15 drops of Tresaderm® into the ear canal twice a day for 7 days. After that, use Frontline Spot On® monthly as a follow up and preventive measures for ear mites and other ectoparasites.
