Works OKThis is the brand I buy because it works a little better than the others however, none of them seem to keep the flies off for more then a few minutes. It is usually on sale most of the summer.

Works great!I bought this earlier in the summer and it works great at keeping the bugs away. They fall like rocks when I spray them. I use it on my dog and around his pen as well as around the outside of my front door.

It's worth a few extra $$In the Deep South, nothing works as well as this. Smells great and lasts longer. The added bonus of beautiful shiny, healthy coats! EXCELLENT!!!

One of the better sprays out thereDon't waste your money on the cheaper brands or on the Absorbine bug blocker (p bottle). Spend the extra couple dollars because this stuff works best and I've tried them all!
Is this product safe to put on goats? Is it safe when licking their fur?
Asked by: 3blackGoats
Hello and thank you for your question! This product is not designed for goats. We recommend Absorbine's "Flys-X For Livestock" which can be found in the Livestock section at your local Tractor Supply. Flys-X For Livestock is approved for goats!
As far as animals licking it off of their coat - if it's only occasional licks, do not worry about it. If you see the goats are cleaning most of the product off of themselves, ingesting a large amount, discontinue use. Thank you for using Absorbine Products!

Would this be safe for pregnant and/or milking cows?
Asked by: lizbeth
Lizbeth, thank you for your question! UltraShield EX has only been tested for horses, ponies, foals (over 12 weeks old) and dogs (over 12 weeks old). However, you can find our excellent Flys-X Insecticide & Repellent For Livestock at Tractor Supply Co. It is labeled for use on dairy & beef cattle, but please ask your veterinarian about using it on pregnant or milking cows.

What are the other ingredients?
Asked by: Tobique
Hello, thank you for your question!
We don't list all of the ingredients in UltraShield EX so as to keep the formula proprietary. We do list each of the active with their amounts on the label per marketplace guidelines. We also mention some of the "other" ingredients such as aloe, lanolin and sunscreens in the product's description. You may view the ingredients we list here:
