Hello. My name is***** see you are having difficulty cleaning Mia's ears. Does she have an infection that has been diagnosed or are they just dirty?
My favorite way to clean a dog's ears is to soak a cotton ball with ear cleaner (do not use hydrogen peroxide as that is painful for some animals and that can't tell us if it is), place the cotton ball gently into the ear canal, then massage the ear for 30-45 seconds. You can then take the cotton ball out (or let her shake it out). If you have medication to place in the ear, then you will want to wait 30-45 minutes for the ear to dry before putting that in the ear.
Does that make sense?
