My GSD is always scratching at her ears. We take her to the vet and they take her to another room to flush out her ears. Before long, she's scratching and whining again. I don't know how the vet is able to flush her ears because she won't let me or my husband put anything in her ears. We have tried telling her to stay, distracting her with treats and peanut butter. One day we trapped her in a bedroom with the intention of holding her down while squirting Monistat in her ears but she struggled so much we were unsuccessful. I asked if there was a pill she could take long term to kill yeast and keep it from coming back, but was told that should be avoided because of side effects.
