mosquitos?

beam has been itching like crazy but we use a flea/tick protection & she has no fleas/ticks, but we have lots of mosquitos & i was wondering if dogs get mosquito bites. & if they do, can i put bug spray on her? (we use deet free spray) i know we used to do it to my old dog (a doberman) but idk if it was ever successful or safe.

Re: mosquitos?

Use Advantix it is for flea/tick prevention and mosquitos too.
I have been using it on Brady for over 2 years now.
Yes they can

not sure what you mean...
sorry if i was unclear, i meant that i was advised not to use Advantix on my dogs if i have cats... because my cats groom & sleep with my dogs and it is highly toxic to cats.
