Help! My mom has dog that has really dirty ears and one of them has an infection. The Vet has given her meds to put in there. The problem is that my mom cannot get the meds in there without the dog biting at her!! I'm sure the ears hurt and this is why the dog won't let her do it. So now my mom is afraid to even try and I think the ear is getting worse. I bought her a muzzle for the dog but she said it was too small and even getting it on her was a struggle. I have told her that the dog could poss. lose hearing in that ear and that she's in pain but she is still too afraid to do it. I am going to try and do it but am also afraid since the one time i tried to put frontline flea on the dog she tried to bite me too!! I need pointers and advice on how to get the meds in the ear without hurting both of us!!Answer Question
There needs to be two people handling the dog or it's not going to work. Our dog has an ear infection too right now. My hubby holds him down and I put the drops in. I would also get another muzzle that fits.

Has she tried contacting her vet back for help? I know it may be a pain in the A** but it might be worth taking him there so they can do it.

Yeah I'm sure. Actually my dog I gave to my sister, not that we weren't taking care of him but I felt he wasn't getting the love and attention he deserved with having my kids. So she had him for a few months and moved from my mothers house into her own and the dog stayed with my mom. Then just a short time ago my mom was in the hospital so I took him thinking it was gonna be a short time and I am stuck with him again. I have him here and I have to care for him while still trying to find a place for him. Not just going to take him to a pound and any place I do find they won't take him because he is too "old" or not coming from a shelter. So he probably is going to be with us again till his final days. Maybe it would be a good idea for her to find a place if he isn't oo old.
