How to Administer Ear Drops or Ointment to Dogs
- Clean the external ear thoroughly with a moistened cotton ball (water or veterinary-recommended solution).
- Gently pull the ear flap over the head and drop the medication into the lowest opening of the ear canal.
- Gently massage the ear area to help work the medication deeper into the ear canal. If there is enough medication in the ear, you will just begin to hear a “squishing” noise as you massage.
