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! 09/08/2013
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. 05/13/2013
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. 09/25/2012
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. 09/21/2012

Answer: 
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.

Ive been using this till empty from vet. What is black dots it leaves in ears

Answer: 
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

Answer: 
Hello,

The black dots may be due to dried residue from the solution; be sure to spread the product around the external ear in a massaging motion; if the black dots are still present, it could be a form of hypersensitivity to the medication and you should consult your veterinarian. Thank you.
