Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I"m happy to help you with your question.

What kind of cleaner is it?

Has the jaw chattering stopped or slowed down now?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The cleaner is Malacetic....I di squirt a large amount into her ear. The chattering stopped as of last night....she slept well...cough twice during the night, when she got up to change positions...she just ate all her food and seems OK...she has legions on her roof top. She has Eosinophilic Stomatitis...from a food allergy. We are still not certain what she is allergic to. They do not seem to bother her but she has one toward the base of her tongue....maybe that got irritated by the ear meds. She was trying to eat grass when I took her out....that has stopped also. Her allergy is being monitored by the vet.

Great. Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.

The fact that it has resolved makes me confident that what likely happened was when you overfilled the ear, it triggered some of the nerves that run between the ears and the mouth (think about if you have a ear ache you often get a sore throat too and vice versa) causing that chattering.

Had it continued, then I'd be more worried about some kind of allergic reaction, but since it resolved I really think that we're just dealing with nothing to be worried about.

I hope this helps.
