Dog's ears are prone to infections quite easily because of the accumulation of dirt and debris. Therefore, routine ear care is very essential. In case your pet is suffering from infections, say, ear mites, then treat its ears with mineral oil. Soak a cotton ball in mineral oil and clean your pet's ears with it. You may also put two drops of the oil into the dog's ear, using an eye dropper, and massage the ear gently. Thereafter, clean the ears with a dry cotton ball.

Now, push down on the lower jaw with the other hand and place the pill in the very back of its throat. Close its mouth and stroke its throat softly, until the pill is swallowed.
