Flies eating her ears
My chow is being bitten by flies on the tips of her ears. I''ve been putting vaseline on it but she rubs it off and the flies just come back. Isn''t there some kind of medication or " home remedy"  to heal her ears as well as repel the flies?
Someone suggests citronella oil - but where do i get one that''s safe to put on skin? I''ve only go the oil which you burn in a candle...
Thank you Doc!!
