What can be done for a dog whose ears are bitten by flies and has bleeding scar tissue
Hello. Thank you for asking your question. My name isXXXXX will try to help.
There is a product called "swat." We use it to prevent flies from going on wounds. You can buy it at many places online. Here is an example, link It comes in clear and pink. I would recommend clear for use on a dog. It will not sting. Apply it 1-2 times a day.
I have been using it for about 20 years on dogs and horses. It is labeled for both.
If he scratches at his ears, they will not heal. You can purchase a plastic cone collar at larger pet stores like petsmart.
To help prevent infection, you can apply neosporin triple antibiotic at night. The fleas are not out at night.
I hope this helps.
