I use it for mine. Just take a tiny bit, rub it in your fingers and spread it in the outside of the ear. Give it 10 mins and hair comes away when you gently pull it. that's what my dog groomer showed me - I hope this makes sense.

It helps to grasp the hair, but be careful you don't get much actually in the ear.

I used thornit powder for Henry's ears , I rubbed a little into the skin and then after about five minutes the hair came out really easy .
I then cleaned his ears out and removed the excess powder .
When I took Henry to the groomers though he did say that I shouldn't have taken the hair out from the entire ear as they need some hair to prevent infections.

Yep - that's how it smells!

How long have you been using the stuff from the vet? It cantake a few days to work. If it doesn't do the trick, I would go back to the vet and ask them to take a swab so they can target the infection with exactly the right stuff, otherwise the go through the usual different drops til they get the right one, and poor Poppy has an ear-ache while they do it!
