BITES

Postby brit.sm » Thu May 21, 2009 8:32 am

We have been putting Bowser outside on his chain while we work for the past couple of days because its been beautiful out. He loves it outside but everytime we put him out, we notice he comes in with some sort of bites near is pelvic area and on his manhood :frown: I don't think its bee stings bc theres to many of them. Maybe spiders or ants? I even put a few blankets down, but he still gets them. There like dime sized, red blotches, they go away within a day or 2 but i feel bad. Is there anything we can put on the grass or on him so this won't happen? Id hate to keep him inside because of it... :crybaby:

Not sure what you can do, but they sound like fly bites...

*shielding my eyes*

Dude, a little warning next time!!!!





Brit, do you currently use any kind of preventatives, like Frontline?


Vinegar and garlic both repel a great many insects, so if you don't mind your dog smelling like salad (which is YUM to me!) then you might try either of those - you can spritz him with them or feed them to him, but don't go overboard on internal garlic, because it might not be great (small doses of it are fine)
