I just found this recipe on the Internet. Is this what you use in your dog's ears?

BLUE POWDER EAR TREATMENT INGREDIENTS

16 ox Isopropyl Alcohol (standard 70%)
4 Tablespoons Boric Acid Powder
16 Drops Gentian Violet Solution 1%

Mix together in alcohol bottle and shake well.

Where do you suppose I could buy Boric Acid Powder and Gentian Violation Solution? Any drugstore probably??

I ordered some gentian violet from our Walgreens Pharmacy. The thing is though, the recipe I found on the internet says "Gentian Violet Solution 1%". The guy at the pharmacy said all that was on his computer was 2%. Does that mean I can just put in half as much??? I'm pharmaceutically challenged...

Okay, I have my Blue Power Ear Treatment stuff all mixed up (after feverishly trying to get the purple stain out of the sink when I spilled some of the gentian violet). Anyway, I haven't used it yet...and here's my question for those of you who have used this stuff: If it stained my SINK and can stain furniture and stuff, won't it stain Emma's ears??? :(
