Hi, Geoff is getting bitten on his ears by what we are assuming are flies. We haven't actually seen them biting them, but there is a small part of the edge of each of his ears which is sore and scabby.
I have been bathing them in betadine, putting paw paw lotion on the sore bits and a spot of aerogard roll on next to the area. They must be sore as he doesn't like you touching them, and he is generally the most tolerant boy you can imagine.
He gets Advantix top spot fortnightly (we have bad paralysis ticks here on the Northern Beaches in Sydney), which I thought was meant to repel flies, but it isn't seeming to do the job.
Is there anything else I could/should be doing to stop this from continuing to happen. Or anything else I can put on them to get better more quickly.
Thanks for your assistance.
