Signs and symptoms of ear problems in pets


Ear infections are very common amongst cats and dogs and can cause severe irritation and discomfort in your beloved pet. Some animals (i.e. dogs of the 'hound' family) are more susceptible to ear infections than others due to the particular structure of their outer ears.

Common signs of ear infection are:

  • Shaking of the head and ears

  • Scratching or rubbing the ears and face

  • Discharge or even bleeding from the ears

  • Foul smell coming from the ears

  • Sensitivity to touching in the ear area

  • General irritability

There are a number of causes of ear infection and common culprits include bacteria, yeasts and mites.  Less commonly, allergies may have a role to play in inflammation and subsequent infection of the ears.

What are ear mites?


Ear mites, or Otodectes cynotis, are small, parasitic creatures that usually live in the ears of your pets causing severe itching and inflammation.  These mites can also live on the head or body of dogs and cats - with the same effects.  They are often large enough to see with the naked eye, can live off a pet’s skin for some time and are very mobile - allowing easy movement between host animals. These mites are highly contagious and will spread between pets in the same household very easily.  They may affect both cats and dogs and even humans may pick up these little critters.


Secondary infections in pets with ear mites are common and generally involve bacteria or yeasts. 

What is PetAlive Ear Dr.?


PetAlive Ear Dr. contains a blend of natural, herbal ingredients in a medicinal olive oil base, all specially selected to treat and prevent ear infections and ear mites without the side effects of prescription drugs or the health and environmental risks associated with commercial synthetic pesticides.


Ear Dr. can provide safe yet effective relief from your pet's ear problems and helps to prevent the spread of mites from one pet to another.


What is the conventional treatment?


Usual treatment of ear infections in pets involves antibiotics and, in the case of mites, medications and products also used for flea control. In severe infestations and multiple pet households, insecticides are sometimes used for treating the house or living environment.

How can herbal remedies help?

As ear infections are so often treated with antibiotics, chronic and recurrent ear infections are a growing problem and usually occur with decreased immune functioning - a frequent side-effect of antibiotic drugs.

Natural remedies can treat and prevent infections of the ear without any of the side-effects and adverse effects on immune functioning that antibiotics do.

How has PetAlive Ear Dr. helped others?

My poor puppy has been scratching his ear and the side of his head against furniture and anything he can find recently - the itching of his ear was so severe that his desperate attempts to scratch even caused sores behind his ear that would bleed intermittently.  Ever since using your Ear Dr. oil his ear seems to have cleared up - I am so relieved as it was terrible to see him in such a state.  Thanks for a great product that works so quickly and effectively! —Dana

My dear old beagle has had almost constant ear infections in the last few years.  The cycle of infection, antibiotics, new infection, more antibiotics was frustrating and soul destroying and his scratching and whining nearly drove us batty!  My vet has a special interest in natural treatment and recommended your website - so I ordered the ear oil and it has been wonderful.  Three months now without any sign of infection and - far from having to find new and more ingenuous ways to get him to take his antibiotics - Benji actually enjoys his little ear “massages”!  Thank you from both of us! —Julia

How do I use PetAlive Ear Dr.?

The ingredients of PetAlive Ear Dr. are presented in a soothing olive oil base.

DIRECTIONS: Hold your pet's head gently to one side and allow the drops to fall into the ear canal. Massage gently to spread the oil into the ear canal. Repeat 2 - 3 times daily for at least 7 - 10 days. Re-apply at the very first signs of re-infection. In the case of chronic ear problems, apply once or twice weekly as a preventative.

Cats and small dogs: 2-3 drops in the affected ear.

Medium-large dogs: 3-5 drops in the affected ear. 

How long until I see results?

Improvement in discomfort, itchiness and pain should begin almost immediately after applying the drops and will continue to improve over 1-3 weeks of regular use.
