EAR MITES: Revolution, Frontline, Acarexx, Ivomec.
1) Revolution (see above) kills ear mites, fleas, ticks, skin
and is a heartworm preventative. Clean ears out and apply monthly.

2) Frontline (see above) kills fleas, ticks, and ear mites. Clean
ears out and apply monthly. The spray is the most cost effective.
3) Acarexx is diluted ivermectin ear drops. It comes in a package
with 2 tubes (1 for each ear). Repeat treatment after 3 weeks.
I suggest cleaning the ears out then applying Acarexx.
4) Ivomec is ivermectin that can be giving as an injection or
topically into the ear. Again repeat treatment in 3 weeks. Clean
ears out
before each treatment.

Hi, inresponce to your note on ear mites. I have 6 babies and need
to redo
the ears for mites. Where do I go to get this product? Can I get
it a pets
store or must I get it through the vets?
Thanks Sunny
