Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Unfortunately oral meds usually don't do the job, so those ear drops will still be needed. If Tucker won't permit the drops being placed into his ears, you do have the option of taking him back to the vet every day for medication. Most staff are happy to do the job with a pet who would rather opt out of meds, given the option. The next option is to have a second person restrain and for you to apply the drops. Make sure to place to muzzle first.My preferred method of dealing with an avoiding pet is to muzzle them, back their bum into a corner and stand over the top of the pet with their body between my knees (works best 50# ***** under for me). Sometimes you have to use your whole body to keep the pet still enough for this to happen. I don't know about your dog but some pets are so itchy that if you massage one ear, it can distract them enough to medicate the other.
