We have three dogs and several cats. The dogs got terrible ear mites from each other and all were laying around rubbing their ears on the floor and yelping if you touch their ears. We tried everything from the stores that we could get our hands on and nothing got rid of these problems. One dog even had sores in his ears. Then we got a sample of this ear cleaner from a local distributor of Botanical Dog and we knew we had the answer. It took several days of applying this because the ear mites had laid eggs but it was the only product we found that cleaned them all out, took away the odor, soothed the sores, and relieved their pain. The mites returned again and again for a week or so but then it was over. The dogs are pain and itch free again, they don't stink anymore, and they are much happier. I'm going to look into more Botanical Dog stuff because I'm sold on it's natural and organic forumula that did much more than any chemical the big names could come up with.
