    Hanging fly sticky traps can be hung away from pets.

    Hi Julie, To make pet friendly fly repellant spray, simply add equal parts vinegar and water to a spray bottle and shake well before spraying an even coat all over your dog. To help get your spray to stick to your dog's fur even better, you can add a drop or two of dish soap to the mix.

    If your dog is constantly getting bitten by flies those ears tend to get ulcerated, which then attracts more flies. Use saline or chlorhexidine to clean those ears and remove any crusts. You can then apply an antiseptic cream and fly repellent to keep those flies away. SENTRY Fly Repellent Spray is an outstanding value because it is proven to kill and repel more than 70 species of flying, crawling, creeping and biting pests. It is approved for use on horses, ponies, and dogs.

    I WOULD NOT PUT VINEGAR AND SOAP ON MY DOG AS THEY DO LICK THEMSELVES. Would you want to eat soap and vinegar?
