I know your post was in April, but, sometimes, when a dog shakes its head, the mites are either deep or there's a yeast infection deep (that's common when the dirt builds in the ear). The peroxide solution and oil you did was great. If the ear looks clean, it may be a yeast infection deep inside the ear. See if there's a smell (it will smell like really yeasty bread). If you don't smell anything, debris may still be caught in the ear. Reclean using your method and/or add a few drops of ivermectin. In our kennel, we use Ear Mite Killer with Aloe. It coats and soothes the ear (ear mites can leave scabbing deep inside the ear that itches the dog). We do sell it at OKIE DOG SUPPLY - but we use it personally and love it. We never leave for long trips without it.

Had one doing the same , lots of guppy stuff in the ear . Used all the ole timer's ticks and several items for ear mites as well . It would clear up for a few weeks but come back . Finally took her to the vet , his thoughts were food allergy . A shot of cortisone of pain & antibotics , suggested changing feed . I didn't and few weeks it was back . Went through the antibotics again , and switched feed for her only it's been bout 3 mths now and no issue's ? It's a pain to feed one dog a different feed but recon I will.

Because we love them just that much! LOL.

I read another remedy and tried it on one of my dogs having an ear problem. After cleaning out the ears, I used the Ear Mite Killer with Aloe I sell until things calmed down, then, I used a 1:1 ratio of white vinegar and warm water. Put a few drop down the ears and rub it all around. It balances the pH in the ear and helps prevent issues with yeast which is often the trigger for other issues.

if for sure it is MITES ---Drop .02 IVomec in each ear --when cleaned up --every so often drop a few drops of mineral oil in each ear --will keep them clean
ALWAY GO BY THE RULES AND NEVER A PROBLEM

Earsolve solution is the best ear medicine I have ever used, has never not worked. I use it every 2 months regardless if they show any symptoms as a preventive. Works on mites, fungus, yeast, bacteria and just cleans the ear canal good. We have it in stock and always will!
