The daycare staff and I lost today. We had a 3 human grown-ups versus 1 slippery eel of a small canine battle with Mya which lasted 30 minutes. Then I decided that we will try to put those eardrops in her ear at another time.
When a dog has a traumatic experience from a careless handler, you pay for it for a long long time.
If and when I get a new puppy, his ears will have the least possible handling from the vet. Also, his nails will only be cut by me.
