What are some natural remedies for ear mites?

Well, to clear up ear mites, I suggest you use some apple cider vinegar. Take a spoon of it and apply on a damp cloth. Then wipe up your ear and watch them disappear.

Cats are commonly afflicted with ear mites, which makes them miserable. They also scratch the skin around their ears raw. Alcohol to kill the mites is very effective, but is painful when it hits the irritated surrounding skin. You must try to use a q-tip or dropper to get it down inside the ear.

You can use either olive oil or vegetable oil and put it in the ear canal and then take a cotton ball to wipe it out.

You can use mineral or corn oil. Wipe it inside the animal's ears; it will both soothe the itching and also smother the ear mites. You could also use white vinegar, but only a small amount swabbed inside the ear. And make sure you dilute it first.

If you mean the ear mites that happen in dogs, use sweet almond oil. Take a cotton swab and make sure the ear is cleaned out first. Use another swab soaked in sweet almond oil and gently rub it around inside the dog's ear. Usually works in a few days.

A good remedy is corn oil, it should kill the mites while also soothing the pets ear. Make sure you use a q-tip so it doesn't go in the pets ear. Another natural remedy is using 9 drops of yellow root extract and 1 tablespoon of water. Make sure you massage in well before the pet can shake it out.
