THE ORIGINAL THORNIT POWDER for ITCHY or SORE EARS
For Ear Mites, Itching and Canker
Does your dog constantly scratch or rub his ears?
One of the most common causes is ear mites that can cause canker.
- Brownish wax inside the ears. This is made by the mite inside the ear canal. The wax can either be dry, or may weep slightly. The ears tend to be smelly.
- The other type is much more offensive, and stinks of gangrene, while discharging globs of pus.
- A pinch of powder is applied using the end of a small spoon.
- Lightly dust around the inner ear avoiding the ear hole. Gently massage it in with your fingers from the outside.
- Relief can often come with the first dose, but the treatment should continue for 1-5 days.
- Helps with other skin problems
- Can be used on dogs, cats and rabbits
Thornit can also be used for stripping hair from ears - Apply half teaspoon to the hair. This makes it much easier to finger pull the hair, as it comes away easily.
Ears, and General Body Itching
A vet in Australia has isolated the mite that causes intense itching and distress in dogs, who are continually scratching and biting parts of their body. The vet says the ear mite has transferred itself to the scurf of the body. It is tiny and very mobile. Vets can find nothing wrong - skin scrapings sent to vet college give a clean bill of health. Shampooing is useless. Treatment - dust some Thornit lightly onto the skin. If animal has long hair, part the hair with a comb, feeding a trickle of Thornit to exposed skin. A Little powder goes a long way.Anus Itching
If the animal pulls it's bottom on the floor, and it is not gland trouble, the mites could have made a breeding bed under the tail. Treatment - Apply a tiny amount of cream or Vaseline to finger of glove and dip into the Thornit powder. Apply to just under tail where necessary.Itchy Paws
Mites can get between the claws, making the animal first lick the paw constantly, turning the pads to jelly. Then they tear out the fur, and finally nibble until there are open sores. Treatment - Hold the paw in a plastic bag containing a small amount of Thornit. Work powder between claws, into pads and a little way up the leg.
