Default Ear infection ointment help!

I seriously can not put ointment in my dogs ear win out him trying to bite me.. Any ideas? He can not stay still at all and no one in my family could help hold him. He's too strong for them.

Treats. Or give him a raw bone to chew on while you do it. You can have someone give i treats to keep him distracted while you administer the drops. A kicking dog is not fun when you're trying to help them.

I kinda treated "ear cleaning" like nail clipping. Make it a positive experience with lots of treats and a party afterwards.

Otomax on the finger and rub the ear and do it. If you pull your hand away in fear of being bitten every-time, when a true emergency occurs your in big trouble and the dog can't do it himself.. I allow Bella to play bite me all the time, she know's the boundaries. I am not afraid of my dog, it's other's peoples dogs you cannot judge them in 2 minutes time.

Here is a video that you may like to watch. I like how they were desensitizing the dog to the ear drops.
