| | This sounds like a two person job .. I think the trick is to not do it by force . I have a Shih Tzu as well and she hates things done to her . Have your dog up on a table or counter if you can so she is facing the other person , have that person hold a piece of chicken or some other soft treat between 3 fingers just let enough stick out for the dog to nibble a little at a time . As this is happening , you come from behind and slowly lift the ear flap and put the drops in . You may have to do this a couple times to get the job done . This method usually works well for me when needed ..
