Hi. I'm Dr. Aimee Beger. I'm a veterinarian and we're going to be talking about ear mites briefly in your dog and cat. We don't commonly see ear mites in dogs. It's more of a cat condition that we find. And typically ear mites are spread from cat to cat. We do see a lot of ear mites in cats that come from shelter situations or cats that are in high or close proximity to one and other. Ear mites are determined at your veterinarian by doing what's call an ear cytology or an ear mite check. All we do is take the debris that we find in your cat's ear or your dog's ear and we put it in a small amount of oil and look at it under the microscope. And often times we see the mites and we can even sometimes see eggs in your pets ear under the microscope of course. The debris that you'll most commonly see at home is a very dry, dark crumbly debris and one or both ears.
