Flag Water In Ears

My 11 yo German Shepherd thinks she is a Lab and loves to swim! Now she has water in her ears that will not come out. She constantly shakes her head but I know the water is still there. I do not want this to get infected. I am unemployed at this time and cannot afford a vet bill at this time. Does anyone know if I can use the "swimmers ear" water removal from a drug store?
Any help is appreciated - or if you have a home remedy PLEASE let me know.

Have you tried just calling the vet to see if it's okay? My vet gives advice over the phone a lot of times. Have you tried having her lay on her side with a towel on her ear? I would definitely touch bases with a vet and see if it's serious.

Give her ear a good sniff. If it smells bad, she may already have an infection. I'd definitely call the vet for suggestions, either way.
