    give that baby some treats afterwards and he will learn to tolerate it for a reward I have to clean lolas ears twice a week with cleaner, and every day with dry tissues. it's part of the deal

    I clean Vegas's outside! He shakes his head too making the solution fly all over, then does the same thing when we come in, rubs his ears all over everything. It is a pain, but needed. What do you use to clean them?

    Yeah, lots of treats and make ear-cleaning as cheery and "fun" for Rebel as possible. Maybe even do a singy-song voice as you clean his ears (I do that when i have to clean the boys' ears and faces). I don't know if singing silly songs helps but as bad as I sing, it somehow eases MY stress!

    Koozer eventually got to the point where we couldn't squeeze the solution directly into the ears.He would see the bottle and run away! So now, I take a cotton ball and thoroughly saturate it with the solution. Then use that in the ear, and the solution will drip into the ear canal. Koozer likes the "massage" effect. Then I have another 1 or 2 cotton balls ready and quickly swap the dry ones for the wet one, and massage his ears some more, while drying his ear canal out. He really likes it...and moans. Good luck!
