Any experience with this product to help keep mosquitos off dogs? We're headed up north tomorrow and have been warned - they're thick. A friend mentioned she uses a product on her dog that's safe for humans and dogs but she didn't say what it was and I didn't think to ask at the time.
At the pet food store, they recommended Zonk-It. This is a spray on solution used for horses primarily but also OK for dogs (they say). It has a lot of cautions on the bottle and includes permethrin. I hate to spray it all over the dog and then get it all over ourselves when he wants to snuggle. On the other hand, I would imagine the biting bugs in the woods will be irritating too.
Ranger has had a recent Frontline application, but I don't believe that works for mosquitos.
Or do I even need to worry? First time dog owner here...maybe the bugs won't bug him?
For a couple weeks in early summer those bugs are thick. Spot and Lola have a cloud of them flying around and I'm sure they are being bitten. I know they are biting me!
Read my thread on Frontline. It looks like Advantix might be better. I know Frontline isn't supposed to work on mosquitos but it seems all the bugs are much less interested in the dogs after I use this stuff.
