When I joined this sight 08' someone recomended Olive oil... Joey has been Mite and Yeast free ever since.


Really? I love to hear that, because my personality would be to go for the full chemical treatment. I am glad to hear something so natural works on ear mites.

How is it going with 22 ears to drop Linda?
May as well put some in your own ears, maybe you will sleep better or something. :lol:

Well, I haven't started oiling the cats and dogs. :oops:I was too tired and I wanted to get some liquid vitE for the olive oil. (I use dried vitE in their food, but I didn't want to stick that in their ears.) And I know these guys will be much less than enthusiastic about the oil in the ears.

22 ears?! :lol::lol::lol:Times 12 days is 264 ears!!!

Rhona's right -- the oil suffocates the mites. Why it would help a yeast infection, I don't understand either, unless the yeast was secondary to the mites?

I've been thinking about it.. Yeast needs oxygen and a warm moist enviroment to grow. The oil probably reduces the amount of Oxygen.

I noticed his left ear has the black goop again.... olive oil here we come :evil: :heart: :cat: :evil:
