    Frontline Plus will not prevent or treat ear mites. The only topical flea product that also treats ear mites is Revolution. This product is available only from veterinarians or with a prescription as it also prevents heartworms. Another very effective ear mite treatment is available from your veterinarian. After confirming that your cat has these parasites with an ear swab test, your veterinarian can apply Acarexx into each ear. This treatment is very effective and convenient. After the single application into each ear, all of the ear mites should be killed and should no longer be a problem for your cat. -Erika, DVM
