Only a weak body hosts parasites. All our animals are designed to handle nature. When nature over takes the body, then this is a large SOS to the pet parent that something is not okay inside the body. The body is operationally weak inside. It is most likely due to a combination of bad food, vaccinations, flea and tick poison etc. which is causing the imbalance. The toxic load is so high the body is compromised. There may also be a trauma connection. Has the pet moved recently? Relocated? Stress could be the driver and the animal needs help rebalancing. How does one drill down on the root of the imbalance?
It is a microscopic little bug which lives down the ear canal. They can also live on the skin. Their life cycle is twenty-one days, so the treatment period for all the animals in the household needs to be this long.
Once one animal has them, it is best to treat all the animals in the household, so the cycle is not perpetuated. It is also advisable to wash bedding every few days too.
The idea is to clear the canal of crumbly black debris, the dead mites, and those still living. The animals will need to shake their heads so it is best to do this in a space where it is easy to clean. Wear an old t-shirt or clothing perhaps too so you can change in case debris gets spattered on you. Some suggest placing a towel over your animal’s head when it goes to shake. The issue is you cannot see what your animal is communicating, the debris cannot fly out, and the animal would of course not like this I am guessing. For dogs, I always do this outside. Cats I do this in the laundry room, on an elevated surface, holding a towel up around them when they go to shake their heads.
This is very important. The syringe NEVER goes down the canal. It is only placed at the top with the ear entry point by gently pulling the ear flap up to create a straight artery. Then the contents of the syringe are syringed down at the top of the canal. Be very careful here please as we most certainly do not want to cause any harm. Cats are easy as their canal entry is more exposed.
I am extra diligent, so this is what I do. However, STEP 3 is known to work just fine by itself. Please do not use any “vet ear solutions” as some may suggest. These products are highly toxic and your animal’s body does not need any additional toxicity to deal with.
Dogs: I do this outside on the grass and let them do their thing.
Cats: I do this in the laundry room, with the cat on the counter. I hold a towel up around them to catch the debris, watching them closely.Frequency | Treatment Period
Do this once a day for 4 days, take 3 days off, then repeat this process again for two more cycles totaling a treatment period of three weeks.If Difficulty Sourcing Tools
If you do not have all the tools, step 3 is the most important, and will most likely do the job all on its own.
Zoopharmacognosey will also help your animal direct the pet parent on why the body is off balance. For those of you who may have the remedies, on hand used in Zoopharmacognosey, I imagine the animal would direct certain oils to be placed at the outside base of the ear in addition to other supportive healing organ remedies. The ear would still need to be wiped clean of the debris using calendula oil or coconut oil.
By processing the remedies, the body will be clearing toxins, allowing the body to strengthen so the mites will no longer be able to thrive. In this instance, the whole body MUST be looked at. This is nature’s way of signaling, “got a problem brewing here”, help the whole body please.
