Q. Is there an OTC cure for dogs with ear mites?
JESSICA L DESROSIERS
A. There are over the counter medications such as Eradimite available OTC that may work to stop ear mites, however most medications are prescription-only. If you are concerned about cost, you can have your vet fax a prescription to a lower cost pharmacy such as 1800PetMeds or DrsFosterSmith. These locations often carry the same prescription products but for much cheaper.
Ear mites are very contagious among pets so if one pet has mites, it is best to treat all at once to avoid the spread of mites from pet to pet and reinfection of your currently affected one.
