Our dog didn't like it either, but depending on how 'mad' your dog gets maybe this will work!
We would smear some peanut butter on the fridge at her level and she'd lick it off. While she's busy at that, we'd kinda straddle her (she's big) and do the drops. She still didn't like it, but was occupied and didn't care as much. (03/01/2007)
When I had dogs with chronic ear problems I not only had to put in drops but had to clean out their ears with a swab daily, a painful procedure. I took the dog into the bathroom and shut the door (lessening escape route) I sat on the floor with the dog between my legs and loved him a while, gave him treats and talked to him. Even though he would occasionally whimper, he sat still and let me treat his ears. (03/02/2007)
When the vet use to clean my dogs ears she would put it on a cotton ball, put the cotton ball in the dog's ear and squeezed it gently. The liquid would then go in the ear instead of everywhere else. (03/02/2007)

We have cats and they may be smaller than your dog, but I sit in a couch chair with arms and put the animal between the arm and me. I have a table near to use q-tips and other stuff handy. My arm goes over top of them and I turn my body to keep them penned in. They try to get out the back of me but I just lean back farther. This gives me one hand to work with and one hand to move and position the head.
Good luck. (03/03/2007)
Try backing them into a corner. (03/07/2007)
