Worked great for my pitty
I now wish I had before and after pictures, but I want to start out by saying ANY dog can get ear mites if they dig in the dirt. Learned that after an expensive vet bill... I chose to turn to 1800 Pet Meds for the otomite plus to treat his ear mites. I got to his ears as quickly as I knew what our problem was, ordered it on here cheaper than anywhere else had it online, and he’s a happy wild NON- itchy pup again! Thank you for the treat in the box, Jupiter loved it!

It’s a good product but if you follow the directions on the label you will be disappointed, as I was when I first tried it. When I first tried it, and it didn’t work I took my cat to the Vet. My Vet recommended the same medication with instructions to use it for three weeks. Following my Vet’s instructions it took care of the ear mite problem.

Works well with Cleansing Solution, as advised!
After reading reviews, comparing product with more expensive options & assessing my Lab & Pit ear conditions; I chose this product to, thankfully, discover a "cure" for one infestation while also preventing the beginning of another. It is such a relief when they stop suffering!!! Pink ears make my rescues, "Baby Girl" & "Granddog, "Good Boy" happy, happy, happy so they can play & relax. A Good product, but I maintain prevention with the 1-800PetMeds ear cleaning solution too. It's a bit hard to figure how much medicine is going into my best friend's very large ears from such a tiny bottle...wish it were bigger & came in larger sz than 1oz.

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!

QUESTION
otomite plus
ANSWERS (2)
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

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.

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.

Re-treat your furry baby at least every 7 days, depending on the severity of the condition, but more frequently than twice a week. If the condition does not resolve in 2 weeks, discontinue treatment and consult your veterinarian..

QUESTION
otomite plus
ANSWERS (2)
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

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.
