My 6 1/2 Irish Red and White Setter puppy needs to be given ear medication 3 times a day in both of his ears for an ear infection. You have to squirt it in his ears. This is a job that takes 3 people he runs and twists and makes it almost impossible to do. Afterwards he avoids the people who gave him the medication and acts very wary around everyone. This can be upsetting because he is usually a very affectionate dog. How can I make giving this medication easier for both me and my dog?

I find that if I give my 9 year old a Bully Stick or a Chewey Treat she behaves better.
Also, once you get the meds in her ear, treat her immediately after. That way she will learn that once it’s over, she’ll be rewarded.
Good luck…my girl is squirmy too!
