Flies on Dog's Ears

flies on dog's ears

Flies on dog’s ears is one of the top problems during warm summer months. Many years ago, before the Internet, I mentioned to my local vet, that I was so frustrated with how the flies were attacking my Wolf’s ears that year, and despite my best efforts to treat, I wasn’t making any progress. He told me he had heard good things about the new Biospot product we were selling, keeping the flies off the dog’s ears. I went back to work,  purchased a tube of bio-spot, and in a very short while, after applying according to directions, the flies started leaving my dog’s ears alone.

Bio-spot has gone through several re-formulations since then, but there are many good options for helping out your dog when the flies just won’t leave their ears alone.

Even today, probably the top question I get on Facebook and Twitter from friends during the summer is about flies on their dog’s ears.

Flies are a paticular nuisance on your dog’s ears because they have a hard time defending their ears. Flies will pick at the ear and this can lead to maggots and infection.
