Can you prescribe something?Connie

Both my miniature dachshunds have been shaking their heads

Both my miniature dachshunds have been shaking their heads and flapping their ears for several days now. I took them to the local clinic and they said there was nothing wrong -- infection, very clean ears. My male is so uncomfortable he has been sitting on the sofa crying and shaking his head all afternoon. Female is still shaking her head but his seems to be worse. What can I do?
