I have been treating my cats for ear mites for a while now and it is very frustrating!! They tell you to use oil to kill the mites and do this everyday for 6days then rest 3 then repeat, but my cats walk around shaking their heads and you can HEAR the extra oil in their ears that hasn't leaked out!! I feel soooo bad for them that I stop, is this normal and should I continue no matter how distressed they seem?? I really wish there was a homeopathic medicine that actually worked to kill the mites!!! Also, I am using Yellow Dock Root Extract every 3 days, how exactly does this help to kill the mites! -May-

Dear May,

If using olive oil use it every day. You need to put an insecticide such as flea powder in the coat to kill the fleeing mites. Homeopathic medicine tells the body to make adjustments towards homeostasis so it cannot kill something else. Herbals can kill. I have never used yellow dock for ear mites. I have seen it as part of an herbal formula to address skin disorders characterized by damp heat or excess. So it may reduce the inflammation in the ear. Good luck.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
