Is Ally is protected against getting ear mites from Ollie with Revolution?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I just wanted to double check on this because the day when I can get the two of them together is approaching rapidly. Ollie is on Revolution and Tresaderm for his ear mites, but I was told it could take a few weeks before they're all dead. Is Ally protected against getting them because she too is on Revolution?

She's just on the regular dose of one dose per month. Ollie is getting a second dose early on Tuesday (2 weeks after his first dose) for the ear mites.

Lastly, will the debris in his ear eventually go away on its own? I was told the Tresaderm would help, but it seems the same still.

Revolution protects against catching ear mites, and it kills them, too. I was told by my vet's tech that the mites die within a couple of application. I cleaned out the crap with Q-tips. But if you're not comfortable doing that, I think it eventually goes away on its on. You can get most of it with a cotton ball twisted up to fit into the ear.

I'm afraid to stick q-tips in his ears. I worry that I might accidentally shove the debris further in his ear.

Ya, I'd stay away from the Q-tips then, you don't want to start on something that difficult. Damaging the ear drum is a greater concern than pushing it further in. There are so many loops and whorls and holes in there when I started doing it I didn't know which one was actually the ear canal. It took some very careful practice in clean ears to figure it out.

I've dealt with a stray that had terrible ear mites...when I was able to catch him I would clean them out with a cotton ball and mineral oil...and gave him a few doses of revolution I think once a month twice..eventually it cleared up his ear...

I'd ask your vet or vet tech for any safe ways of cleaning ears, especially with those mites. May be less worrisome to just let the pro's take care of, or at least watch you go through the steps for the first time.

I agree. I will let the vet either do it, or show me how.
