Sensitive Ears When Cleaning

I have a 9 week old puppy, I just took him to the vet yesterday and the vet told me to clean his ears twice a day with epi-otic. He showed my how to do it and he completely bent the dogs ears back to get the solution down. Now im not expert but everything that ive read about GSDs is that you should not bend the ears, especially before they become erect. Now its come time for me to do it today and im a little worries about harming Dettmer in the long run by doing this. Does anyone have any experience or advice for me?

Does your pup have an ear infection? If not I wouldn't mess with their ears at all.
