Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hello! Can anyone recommend an insect repellent, not for fleas and ticks, that I can use on Suka? We have been taking our walks down some old abandoned railroads tracks on our property. Hubby keeps the path clear of brush and it is shaded so it is great for our evening walks but the last several nights poor Suka has been swarmed with biting flies, gnats and some weird bee/fly looking things. I use Deep Woods Off on myself but I would never put it on her....any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

You may find some useful suggestions on this thread Here. You aren't alone with the bugs. A few of us have been having the same battle. If you've tried any of these already, let us know how they did. We've been discussing the effectiveness of some. My bounce dryer sheets have been working for me but I am thinking an off brand isn't as effective.

You might try a pyrethrin based product (chewy.com has some labeled for flies etc) I use Vetguard Plus mostly for its tick efficacy but noticed that mosquitos and those little biting black flies hover around Ami but don't seem to land.

Thanks for the suggestions! The local Petsmart didn't have any pyrethin based products as you suggested so I will check out chewy.com tonight. Smile But I did find this and I'm hoping it will get us by until I can get something ordered:

The other Insect Shield products on Amazon got good reviews so I've got my fingers crossed!

This product has a pyrethrin (permethrin) in it and cautions not to use another permethrin product simultaneously. Hopefully, it will work.
