I have no suggestions on the vet aggression. I have had personal experience with dogs with ear gunk. We had a dog with black gunk in her ears. She had both an ear infection and a yeast infection in her ears (it did smell). The vet did prescribe an oral antibiotic for the bacterial infection and special antifungal ear wash for the yeast. We just wet(soaked) cosmetic pads with the wash and gently pushed it into the ear (but not to far). Then we rubbed the ear like we were giving a loving ear rub with lots of praise and lovey dovey talk to work things around. Then we pulled the dirty pad out. It seemed to work a lot better than trying to squirt the stuff in the ear. If the ear doesn't smell it might be ear mites and not an infection. I don't think antibiotics work on ear mites.
