Flies are biting my dogs, they have a few scabs and sores. Skin So Soft seems to help some, but they rub it off. The outside of their ears are the worst. Any help will be great. Thank you.

I had this problem with my dogs back when I had horses. Horse flies would not only attack my horses but also my dogs. Go to your nearest Co-op store or pet store and purchase fly repellent for horses. I got the spray kind and sprayed all my animals. It worked wonders!

I had 2 outdoor dogs and for whatever reason, the biting flies would bite the ears of one dog and not bother the other. You can get fly ointment from the vet. It's white ointment in a jar. Just spread this on their ears a couple of times a day. Works great...

I heard a lot of home remedies about how to keep flies from biting your dogs ears. I put on lavender scented baby oil and the flies are not bothering them.

The flies on your puppies ears can be stopped by putting Vaseline Petroleum Jelly on his ears. The ears will become inflamed and infected unless you protect them.

I used Cinnamon, just sprinkle on your hands, rub under belly, the dig pits, and sprinkle on the dog, the sleeping areas, and around the home too. Works Great, and smells nice.

Lab in wading pool.I have 3 pure bred Labs and they are outside dogs year round. Since we have had this horrid heat wave, they have a small kid pool that they play in. This month the flies are biting and gnats are starting to get bad on our oldest dog's face to the point she nearly claws herself in the eye. I know gnats hate vanilla, but will coco butter shampoo for humans repel both the flies and gnats? Two Labs.

The best thing you can do is too keep your dogs inside during the time that the flies are out. You should also have them checked for heartworm, because they are likely to be bitten by mosquitos too. May I ask why you have dogs if you don't live with them? Dogs are pack animals, and if you want to be their leader and not just a friendly neighbor, they need to be sleeping in the same "cave" as you.

I use Avon's original bath oil Skin So Soft. You have to mix it with 5 parts water to one part SSS. Its a great insect repellent for your pet (as recommended in Outdoor Life and Field and Stream).

Skin So Soft works as the previous post mentions BUT you have to mix it with 5 parts water to one part Skin So Soft.

It works great to for killing fleas. Rub it into the fur and down to the skin. Do not let your pet lick it or apply it around his face.

Make several fly traps and put them around the outside of the kennel (about 10 feet) this will kill most of them. Then keep antibiotic ointment on the ears yo help them heal anf to keep as ny flies from biting.

How can I keep flies away from my outside dogs? As soon as I think I have them under control, they come back with a vengeance. Help?

Thanks so much for the input! My six mountain cur loves thank y'all too. I was afraid to spray them with actual bug spray. I bought some ointment over the weekend at a local farm supply store. I'm hopeful. I love the planter pot idea as well.
