Fly Spray For Pregnant/nursing Mares

Recommended Posts

My mare is 10 months pregnant and the flies and ticks are getting pretty bad. We use Endure fly spray on our horses because it works really good on both flies and ticks. It doesn't say anything on the bottle about using it on foals or pregnant/ nursing mares. Does anyone know if it is safe to use?

As with any fly spray, it's fine to use. If they mare is still in foal you can spray her anywhere, just make sure to clean her udder very well before she foals. If the mare has a foal on her side, basically (IMO) don't spray the fly spray anywhere on the mare that the foal might mouth (especially the udder). That's what I do, but I use Horse and Pony Spray (oil based spray). It kills flies on contact and also kills ticks (I've watched them die).
