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 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.

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).

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.

If the vet says there's no underlying cause for the attraction, score the rind of an unpeeled lemon with a sharp knife, slice, & then simmer on medium heat for at least an hour. After it cools, put it in a spray bottle & spritz the dog, lifting the coat as you go. I never met a fly or flea that enjoyed lemon oil.

My dogs are being pestered by flies biting their ears. Will my dog get sick from the fly bites? How do I keep the flies off my dogs?

I read that putting vaseline on the dog's ears can help protect them. I have had that problem with my dachshunds and that's what I did. I also picked up the poop more frequently which drew the flies.

You do need to talk with your Vet to prevent pests. If the flies chew along the dogs ears, vaseline applied to the edges of the ears can help it to heal. But if you dont prevent the pests you will never get ahead.

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.

We have one outside dog that is being bitten unmercifully by the flies this year. She is bleeding on her back and ears. Skin so Soft did not work. I had heard rubbing rosemary on the dog would help and I tried that, but it only gave brief relief.
