    Default Mosquitos

    Hello!

    I have a two year old English Bulldog, we got him as a rescue almost three months ago, we are going to be taking him up to the cottage for the first time this coming weekend, and I was wondering about the effects mosquito bites could have on him, is there anything we need to do or buy before we go? Thank-you!

    We use Sentinel for their heart worm preventative. I have never tried these, but here are some ideas for a natural mosquito repellent. Wiping your dog's fur down with rubbing alcohol, dryer sheets or diluted Avon Skin So Soft bath oil (a favorite of hunters) can repel mosquitoes. Some people recommend a spray made up of whitevinegar and water mixed in equal parts, with a single drop of either cedar, lavender or lemon oil added to a quart of the vinegar-water mix. Hope this helps.

    Dogs can get heartworm from a mosquito bite so be careful especially if you are in a high risk zone.

    I use lemon water to keep fleas, ticks and mosquitos away from Abby. So far there's not been a bug on her.

    For me, her name was Abby
