My poor baby :(

My dogs have been outside for about 2 hours (mostly because they wanted to play and refused to come in) well I just went to bring them in for dinner and one has a TON of flies all over her... Mostly her ears but other places as well. I don't want to let her in and bring all those flies in the house... I'm about to go outside and spray her down hoping the flies will come off long enough for me to let them inside...
What can I put on her to keep the flies away from her? She doesn't have any open cuts or anything, we clean the dog poop often and they get bathed often.

maybe shes just smelly? lol

go to a livestock store like country max or tractor supply plus. go to the horse section and get some fly spray. spray it on when they go out. problem solved. lol

or gooogle or youtube on how to make your own, but the store bought is better in my opinion.

Did you check her ears? I had a cat who had a horrible ongoing problem with one of her ears that would attract flies if we didn't keep it clean. She also could have just rubbed her head in something dead.

This is the first time she's had this problem and we've had her for 2 years. Our other dog doesn't have it. I managed to chase her down in the yard and spray her enough to get the flies off (I'm sure if any neighbors were watching it was quite commical since she HATES water and I almost tripped twice lol) but I'm going to feel bad letting her out again until I find something :/

She doesn't smell. She actually just had a bath 2 days ago too... We don't have any of those stores around us, we have Walmart and Dillions. I love living in the middle of absolutely no where (sarcasm)

Flies are all over my dogs too, they aren't smelly or have anything wrong with them.
