I'm pretty sure my new rescue kitten has ear mites. She shakes her head from time to time and has black dots in her ear. I'll be taking her to the vet soon, and I'll get the ear drops and everything - I had a rescued cat who had this when I got him before, and I know it's not a huge deal, but I was wondering: Can dogs get ear mites from cats? I asked the shelter staff whether there were diseases that my puppy could get from a kitten who had been abandoned and they said not, but I didn't ask about ear mites specifically, since I hadn't noticed it yet. She's bound to have a few bugs from being unvaccinated and abandoned in unclean conditions, so I'm wonderin what I should be careful of when it comes what can be transmitted to by dog. I don't have any other cats. Thanks.
