Otomite Plus is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from it's very infective it works very well but is a pain in the butt to the get the drop in my cat lulu's ears. She's a perfectly healthy kitty now and is as happy as can be

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't SELF-diagnose! I tried to rid my 2 cats of "ear mites" for 6 months, spending hundreds of dollars in the process. I used Otomite then graduated to Revolution, but nothing worked. They scratched the fur off their ears, constantly shook their heads, and endured the whole medicine application process (it IS a process!) for SIX MONTHS, all because I thought symptons/ear mites=ear mites. Wrong. After a trip to the vet, it was determined that they had a YEAST INFECTION! With the proper vet-prescribed medicine, they were fine in a couple weeks. Recently, after Dude returned from his first-ever "2-day Real World Adventure," a vet checkup revealed he had picked up ear mites (for real this time,) which is why I purchased Otomite again. Worked like a charm! For the cost-conscious: Vets are their own pharmacists, meaning they write prescriptions just like an MD, then fill it themselves, most of the time at HUGELY-inflated prices. You CAN ask them their price(s) first, then to write you a prescription to shop around for the medicine, however that means more time that your pet may be in distress. I get a prescription and check online (and with other local vets) first, then decide if the savings are big enough to justify any delay in treatment, often returning to my vet an hour later (in shame.) Bottom line: save yourself time and money/save your pet undue strife: get a vet checkup!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be sure that your pet actually HAS ear mites!! I see that there are negative reviews on this product. I almost wrote one, as well until I found that my animal did NOT have ear mites. After applying Otomite w/no results, I took my pet to our Veterinarian where it was determined that they suffered from something else; either dry ears, fungal infections or ear wax build up. If you are SELF diagnosing your animal (and probably are because you're ordering online and not through your Veterinarians)...you might be MIS diagnosing. This product works GREAT if, indeed, your animal actually suffers from ear mites.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Miserable Kitty Used consistently according to directions for two weeks. Ears were cleaned first as directed but the ear mites would be back with a vengeance within 2 days after treatment. Otomite Plus did nothing to help my poor miserable kitty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I was hoping this would work since it is used by vets but it never cleared my cat's ears. It seems like it has made them appear less dirty from time to time but the problem keeps returning even when I am consistantly using it. I wish they could make a stronger more effective product.

if otomite is licked by cat

After putting otomite in my cats ears some leaked out of his ear and on to his fur which he then cleans with his paws and then licks his paws. Is this safe for him. He has had no reaction to the first dose but it didnit leak as much because my vet administered the first dose.
Asked by: catbeg
You may have used a little more than intended; or not placed into the ear enough to prevent leakage. Just a few drops should do, and then massage into the ear, gently...with finger tips...

How many times should I use this for my

pet
Asked by: Lo
Read the instructions. If the infection/irritation is not too severe; once a week or once every 10 days until you're sure the mites are dead..If very severe; it is ok to use twice in a week period...following the directions exactly as suggested.

otomite plus

Ive been using this till empty from vet. What is black dots it leaves in ears
Asked by: shykay
Otomite does not leave black dots on your animal's ears....that is a result of dried blood from an ear mite irritation in the inner ear or outer ear. Otomite is clearish and , when applied, causes your cat/dog to shake his head....loosening the dried blood which works itself out of the ear. This is what you're seeing

How long after applying Otomite Plus to treat earmites, should I keep my pet away from other animals to prevent spreading the mites?

Asked by: Illy
Isolate your pet the entire time it is being treated for the mites. It may take multiple treatments to erradicate the mites. If symptoms persists after 2 weeks of treatment, please discontinue and consult your veterinarian.
