    @TessaAndSamson that is exactly how my vet told me to do it, and when I said 5 drops, really??? I am not going to count, I just squirt it in, but anyway, Squirt, massage well until very wet sound, jiggle the ear up and down and all around, then let him shake it out, OUTSIDE, I do make him wait a bit by holding his head and telling him what a good boy he is and he is going to get a treat, then after he shakes. I wipe as much as I can, the rest goes on my area rug as he runs 90 miles an hour with his ear to the rug making sure to do both sides. Between the scoots when he needs his anal glands done and the ear oil/dirt, you could not pay me enough to sit on my rug, that is why god invented Stanley Steamer, it gets your carpet cleaner!!!

    I think that Bruce talked to the vet so much yesterday about Vegas and the MRI that they just skimmed over the details about HRH's ears.

    Bruce had told him that we got her ears cleaned at Petsmart and the vets comment was to do them at home because they weren't very clean. He likely expected Bruce to pay attention while he was cleaning them, but since I'm the one in charge of those details he didn't watch too closely, and I was at work, not at the appointment. He did tell me the vet used the large swabs they have. But that's where I am worried about not knowing how far in to wipe. I like the idea of the cleaner that loosens up the wax.

    I watched the girl do them at petsmart and she just took some cotton squished with some cleaner and wiped them, so thats all I have been doing too.

    baby wipes to start and then a q-tip if more cleaning is needed... we also add a bit of oil once every few weeks on our other dogs... this loosens up anything that the initial cleaning didn't get...
