Remember that the ear may be very painful and that even a passive dog may respond by biting. You may need to muzzle the dog for this procedure.

Instructions

  • Click on the “video” button to watch a demonstration or read the steps that follow.
  • Warm the medication by standing the bottle in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes.
  • Make sure you have carefully read the label and understand the dosing instructions.
  • Draw up the liquid into the dropper.
  • Gently pull the ear flap straight up using your other hand.
  • Apply the prescribed number of drops into the ear canal while continuing to keep the ear flap elevated.
  • Rub the ear against the dog’s head in a circular motion. Be cautious and gentle. The dog may not allow you to do this.
  • Release the ear and let your dog shake its head. If the medication contains a wax solvent, debris will be dissolved so it can be shaken out.
  • Make sure you give your dog plenty of praise throughout the procedure and offer a treat after giving the medication.
