  • Hello Char,
    there is no specific spray for that. But....You can buy Skintastic at Publix or Kroger and pour the content of the bottle into a box of baby wipes. Once complete soaked, you can use them to wipe your dogy down, everytime he/she goes outside.
    Spraying your dog with Skintastic will not work as well. You will more like miss some spots. Or if you can spend a couple of bucks extra, buy Avantix Tick-Flea- Mosquito protection.

    Take care... Sylvi

  • Use Avon SOS(skin so soft) works wonders. Horses do well with it too.

  • There is a new pet med similar to Frontline. It protects against fleas, ticks and mosquitoes from what I understand. I wish I could rememebr the name of it for you. Your vet could recommend something safe. Call them in the morning :)

  • I heard that the vet has something for that. it is a six month treatment, that is about all I know.

    I also was told that Skin So Soft works, but put it on so the dog wont lick it off.
