Fly biting is a sign of seizures. I highly recommend having him evaluated by your local vet. I would start with a physical exam and blood work to look for underlying causes of seizures such as liver disease.
I would also start anti-convulsant medication. I prefer a drug called zonisamide. It acts quickly (within 48 hours) and has very few side effects.
Please let me know if you have further questions. I am happy to continue until I provide the service that you seek.

DOES THIS HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE WAY HE WAS TREATED AR THE GROO ER?
Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.
No, fly biting is evidence of a neurologic disease. Unless he experience severe trauma or choking, I can not link a trip to the groomer with the onset of fly biting behavior. It is very likely coincidental.
