Topical medications may include ointments or ear drops owners must apply directly inside their puppy's ear. They can help treat the infection by preventing bacterial growth and loosening any wax and pus impacted in the ear canal. If the vet has prescribed topical medication for home use, it should come with specific instructions on how to properly administer it. Generally, you will be required to introduce the medication into your puppy's ear and massage it gently. Doing this can be painful for your dog, especially in the early stages of the infection. There is a chance your dog may scratch or bite you to try to escape the discomfort, so be patient and careful until you’re sure how your dog will react.
