    Mine are thick coated, but often their noses are covered with mozzies. But it is me who suffers the most, must try some of the suggestions

    Dear that is bad. I live on a creek & we don't have them that bad thank goodnes.
    The bug off plant can also be pulled & rubbed on your skin & works well & is nature no chemicals.

    I had to google some insect replants safe to use on dogs (for my bf's dad whose dogs get attacked by flies, i'm surprised they haven't carried them away yet :P)
    Anyway, the majority of stuff that I found was home made, natural stuff. Not sure how well it works though but it's worth a shot since stuff like the Rufus and Coco one is $15 for a small bottle.

    Default Pet microchips

    Microchipping is a great way to protect your pet against loss.
    Any foreign material can cause reactions under the skin, and these reactions can lead to cancer. Microchips are specifically designed to be minimally irritating and the risk of cancer from microchips would be millions to one. In some cases, cancer from other injections (also very rare but well documented esp in some vaccines used in the US) could be confused with microchips because they are given in the same site.
    Bottom line: your pet is thousands of times more likely to be lost and need the microchip than it is to die of cancer from the procedure.

    Its something like 1 in every 2 million dogs will get some sort of malignant tumour. I'd rather risk it.
