They sell some stuff at either Tractor Supply or the feed store going towards Evarts. It's for horses, but you can use it on dogs too. Can't think of the name of it but we've used it before and it does work. Just explain what you need and they will get it for you. The flies would eat our dog's ears so bad they would bleed. I believe that you need to reapply it after it rains.

I have the same problem with my lab. Go to walmart and buy the Equine fly spray. Its in the pet dept where the horse supplies are. Its in a yellow bottle and only 5 dollars.

Avon's skin so soft on our dog. All you have to do is buy it and rub it on them every couple of days. We used to rub it all over them, not just their ears. It worked wonders and really wasn't that expensive. I would buy it when it was buy one, get one.

you bathe them frequently is the most inexpensive and healthy way for the dog.

Actually depending on the breed of the dog if you bathe it alot its fur will starting falling out, a vet told me that hisself. And I do bathe him like I should it has nothing to do with that.. But thanks though.

I have 2 Akitas and for 4yrs I have been looking for a product that works. I have tried every home remedy and commercial products. This happens every summer! My dogs eats are no longer pointed and had no hair almost half way down. I moved from NC to TN and its gotten worse. I went to a feed store and went through my normal routine. But this time it worked!!!!!! I applied paste in the morning and after a week their ears scabbed up and are finally healing. i almost cried!! A 6oz jar was $15.95 but I only use a little ea time so it might last me 3yrs (summer time) Its call SWAT original fly repellent ointment, comes in pink and clear but ingredients are the same & made by Farnam Horse Care Product ~I hope this helps anyone in need. I also used rubber dish gloves

I know a guy in Mississippi who swears by those tags that you see in cows ears. He hangs it on his dogs collar. I think color of the tag determines strength, and I don't remember the color he uses but I will call him and ask if you think you want to try that. I haven't tried it but it makes sense that they would work and you wouldn't have to reapply after bathing or rain.

Use a fly swatter! It works great, plus your dog will stop jumping on you!

The flies can't bite through the vasoline. Theres tons of remedies on the web. Try to keep all the stuff out of your yard that attracts flies. And use bug spray,but not on your dog. Seems like this year theres more flies than ever. I have a bush beside my door and when it blooms it attracts swarms of bugs, waspers, I have to spray it with that raid. If all else fails do what I do call the vet and ask what works best.
