Thornit Powder for Ear Mites

The original Thornit Powder using Mr W Watchman’s proven formula of 1907
Canker is caused by a mite, picked up in grass often dropped by foxes.  A visual symptom of canker is brownish wax inside the ears. This is made by the mite chewing the ear in the dark.  The  scabs can be dry, or may weep slightly causing a smell.
The other type is much more offensive, and stinks of gangrene, while discharging globs of pus. In both cases the symptoms are scratching, head shaking rubbing of the ears on the floor and general distress. There can be red sores inflammation and blood clots caused by caused scratching. The standard treatments of drops and antibiotics may only give temporary relief. There are no antibiotics in THORNIT, so it can be used in perfect safety.

Instructions for use
Any excess moisture can be gently mopped up with a cotton wool swab.DO NOT REMOVE WAX. Under normal circumstances powder should not be put in ears but the brown wax does act as a cork. Get the animal in a good position lying on its side (for cats you may some help with this part). Apply 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. Apply THORNIT twice a day but the treatment should continue for 1-5 days. When the brown wax starts to move – stop. This means the mite is dead and the wax will come away pushing out the powder and leaving a clean ear.  A pinch of THORNIT in each ear once a week will keep the animal free from re-infection. For long eared breeds it is advisable to dip the ends of each ear in THORNIT  once a week.

Thornit for intense scratching.

Body Itching
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.

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.

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.

Environmental Issues

For all treatments only a very small amount of Thornit is needed per dose. Care should be taken as lodoform could stain a pale carpet or furnishings
