Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

Luckily this product has not been shown to have any toxicity in dogs but can cause local irritation to the skin in some people and pets. Because it was placed in the ear I would advise using a cotton ball with 50/50 white vinegar and water to wipe out what you are able to from both ears and repeat again tomorrow.

If there is any hearing loss (I really do not expect this), nausea (licking lips, increased salivation, eating grass), vomiting, sedation, head tilt, circling then please consult with your veterinarian but I really do suspect that you will have no issues with this mishap

I hope this makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both today
