Have you taken the infected dog to the vet? Your vet will be able to give you drops or other forms of antibiotics to clear the mites and to help your other dog not get infected.

In the mean time, keep them from interacting closely – i.e. playing rough, sleeping together, etc.

I’d definitely take your dog to the vet though. You don’t want to risk having to deal with two dogs having ear mites.

Ear mite remedy; place some olive oil or corn oil into the ear and then a cotton ball.
You can do this to the Ear mite kid. It will drown the mites:
