Ddog has been bitten around both eyes - by midges, we think. She's developed blister-like swellings that have reduced quite a lot when we put a cold, wet towel on them, but I'd like to be able to prevent it happening again, so I was wondering if there are any insect repellents that are safe for use on dogs. I wouldn't put it too close to her eyes, but was hoping that if it was on her head, it might stop the midgies biting her.
I too would suggest one meant for horses - Net Tex advanced fly repellent is pretty good - it's supposed to last up to 3 days from the application, but for piece of mind you might want to do it every day, however a little does go a long way! It contains DEET and some people/animals can be a bit sensitive to this, but it's definitely worth a try.
It even works on humans as my dad found out - he now swears by it
