    The ear wax production is WAY OVER the top, and abnormal. It indicates a problem as does the body wriggling. She likely has a yeast ear infection due to food allergies. If the dog is on a grain based diet, I would suggest getting off ALL grain. There are some grain-free puppy foods, if your puppy is still eating puppy food. (Some people switch or begin to switch over, to adult at 6 months).

    "Cleaning" the ear will not cure a yeast infection. You will need an RX like Zymox drops & a change in diet to get rid of the root cause.

    You need to buy a good ear cleaner and use it until the ears are clean, then use it once a week or so after that to keep them clean. Groomers can't see deep into the ear. Vets can, with their otoscopes. I'm surprised that the vet didn't sell you a good ear cleaner. You couild call and ask what the vet would recommend and then buy it at or an online pet supply place.
