    THIS PRODUCT IS POISONOUS TO CATS!!! After two doses, my cat became lifeless and stopped eating, drinking and playing. Took her to the vet where she had to stay overnight on intravenous fluids and medications. Please DO NOT USE any products on cats that contain PYRETHRIN. It is poisonous to cats - look it up!

    Merchant Response:We are very sad to hear about your cat's adverse reaction. ? Otomite is an EPA registered/approved over-the-counter product. Please have your veterinarian reach out to Virbac or the EPA directly. Pyrethrins are a botanical insecticide derived from Chrysanthemum flowers.
    • NONE!
    • POISON!

    Otomite Plus Ear Mite Treatment is a great buy!

    My two cats, Possum and Precious, don't like to be treated, but they love me when they realize that I've gotten rid of their mites! And I appreciate their loving purrs!
    • Mites disappear!
    • Cats don't like the liquid going into their ears, and they stay clear of me for an hour or so, but it doesn't take long for them to return to me for some petting!

    I am very satisfied with my recent purchase of Otomite. It was shipped very quickly and was exactly what I needed for my cats. It was a LOT cheaper than getting it from my vet too! Keep up the good work EntirelyPets.

    I have two kittens that had ear mites. It still took three treatments, but I think this is the best ear mite treatment out there! Certainly a great deal compared to the vet or even a low cost shelter clinic!

    Working, time will tell if it works as directed

    So far I cant say it has killed all mites, because ear mites will live on the body and environment so treating cats ears, body and environment may take as long as 4-6 months to kill every single mite, it also does not clean the ears out of mite debree which can get in the way of treatment , (you or Vet must do that first).
    I can say it has lessened the severity of the condition and kept the kittens which arrived from getting them.

    My cats did not get sick from it, though they got diahreah after first day of treatment each time I treated (3 times treated so far) but they didn't go off food which I was worried about. I am hoping with this product an end might be in sight.

    Please do remember ear mites migrate to body parts and can even be carried from cat to cat by humans so this is 1 step in ridding your pet of mites/ Scientists and vets working in the research say whole house and entire pet treatment and consecutive ear treatments are nec.

    I knew my kitty had ear mites so I was really happy that I was able to treat her at home. Saved me a lot of money by not having to take her to the vet and saved her poor ears from being scratched to shreds. Easy to use and this product got rid of the mites in no time. Highly recommend.

    This treatment works perfectly. I applied it as the directions stated only once and my dog was cured. I've tried so many things even the medicine the doctor prescribe for my baby and nothing worked. It only worked for a couple hours and my dog started crying and shaking and flapping his ears. He even scatched his ears until they where bleeding in which I had to purchase another medication from the vet to cure the infection he had from scratching his ears so much.It took atleast 2 or more years to finally find this treatment. This product is really great and I would reccommend it to everyone whos pet is having ear mite problems. Now my baby is a happy camper now and has not had a problem since. Thank you Entirely Pets. You are 5 plus stars in my book....

    Otomite Plus is very easy to use. I did have to use it a couple of times for it to truly do the job. But I would rather do it myself for 10 bucks than pay $75-$100 (visit & meds) at the vet.
    If you need ear mite medicine, just buy it!!

    Heinz had ear mites and he would scratch at his ear several times a day. After being treated with this, he doesn't scratch his ear anymore and the mites are gone.
