Use this ear mite treatment made with yellow dock (Rumex crispus), an astringent herb, to kill your pet's annoying pests. Ear mites invade pets’ ears and cause them to scratch incessantly. One way to prevent ear mites from invading pets' ears and causing them to scratch incessantly, is to thoroughly shampoo your pet’s head, ears and tail at least once a week.
