No! Go to a local vet and purchase an ear mite solution. You squeeze some in the ears , hold it closed, let your dog shake is head around, then gently use a few q-tips and cotton swabs to remove the mites and the dirt they create. If you use peroxide, you will burn the tender area within the dog's ear. After one week, repeat process just in case any eggs that you didn't get the first time will die. Many dogs and cats are born with ear mites. If left untreated, the animal can go deaf and cause permanent hearing loss.

Go to the pet store and buy an ear cleaning solution and ear mite medicine. Clean the ears out well and let your dog shake his head, and then apply the ear mite meds.

It will take retreating several times to clear them out if that is what he has follow instructions on the ear mite med bottle. It could be an ear infection and not mites.

You'd be much better off using mineral oil.

Many people have used garlic oil to treat ear mites with good resutls. I found this site www.natural-dog-health-remedies.com/ear-mites.html that also says you can use garlic and mullein oils to treat ear mites. Please check it out. I think using natural remedies is much better and safer for our dogs.
