Ear mites sound like a human being's worst nightmare. The spider-like mites live on top or under the surface of the skin, depending on the species. They can spread rapidly from one animal to another, so getting an infestation under control as soon as possible is imperative. It is usually recommended that if you have multiple small mammalian pets, you should get them all treated at once.
Ear mites are the most common cause of ear infections in companion animals. Two species-specific mites can cause in-ear infections, Otodectes in dogs and Notoedres in cats, while surface mites from the Demodex genus cause infections on the skin of and around the ear.
Luckily, ear mite symptoms are relatively easy to recognize. Seeing the insects crawling around your pet's head is an obvious clue, as is a black or dark rust-colored crusty and crumbly discharge that they cause. An intense itching will also likely beset your pet. They may start shaking their head violently and vigorously, and scratch or rub their ears in an effort to dislodge the irritating arachnids. You may also notice discharge or a foul odor.

At any rate, you should always check with your vet first to rule out any fungal or bacterial infections with similar symptoms.
