As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Swat Fly Ointment protects wounds, open sores, scratches and abrasions from dirt, filth and disease-carrying flies. Botanically-derived pyrethrin formula repels house flies, stable flies, face flies and horn flies, and kills them on contact. Ideal for use on the ears and other facial areas. Apply Swat Fly Ointment daily for continued protection. For use on horses, ponies and dogs. 6 oz. jar

    Swat Fly Ointment is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for bites! My horse had a bunch of bites on his belly that were obviously itchy. This seemed to help! Despite the fact that it's pink, it didn't look pink on my black horse.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product This is a classic. Works great - can't be beat. However, if I realized it now came in clear instead of the traditional hot pink, I would have purchased the clear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't Leave for the Barn without it! I've used SWAT for over 10 years, and just can't say enough good things about this product! I was first introduced to it at the barn I used to board at when I had problems with small, biting flies that liked to get into my horse's ears and bite! I always felt so bad for him, because I constantly kept cleaning the bugs out of his ears, and he always had bite spots that were bleeding. I've always had to wear fly masks on him without ears, because he refuses to keep one on that has ears. SWAT works wonders when applied lightly inside the ears. It definitely keeps the biting bugs at bay! I also use it on my horse's belly, as small flies like to gather right in the middle of his belly and bite - the SWAT works there as well! I definitely buy the Clear formula, because I bought the Original once when the store was out of Clear--Never. Ever. Again! Although, I'll admit that the pink is easy to see, it's just a little girly looking for geldings...and all of my guys are...well guys! Highly recommend this product - whichever color works best for you, both keep flies away!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This summer my filly cut open her leg really bad. She pretty much cut off her whole bicep muscle! She had quite a few stitches that kept pulling apart so it kept staying gooey(in August remember!) so he flies were just giving her a terrible time. The vet didn't want me putting ANYTHING on top of the stitches/open mess so that made fly spray not so much of an option. I got this during one of those emergency run-to-the-feed-store-as-fast-as-you-can days and it has really saved me so much pain! It was easy to apply however I do recommend using gloves!I also LOVE the smell! It smells like pink lemonade, I want to eat it!only problem is I had to put it on twice a day because it would dissolve or get rubbed off or something in the heat, anyway I had to put it on more than I wanted to but I really didn't mind that much.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does it's job Swat is helpful in my barn when used on the horse's skin that is threatening to break open due to fly bites. We battle summer scratches due to fly bites and Swat is the best arsenal for treating and preventing the fly bite scratches.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My tack room won't go without it! This stuff really does work! It helps keep flies away from wounds as well as washes off nicely with no greasy residue, my gelding had a cut on his hip and I have no doubt that without this to protect the cut, it would have never healed because of the flies biting it, a must have for every tack trunk.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expensive, but well worth it! A few years ago, my mare caught her side on an open stall latch, and ripped a hole in her side that I could (and did!) fit my fist into. We stitched it up, but she ripped the stitches out, leaving a lovely, gaping hole just behind her shoulder. Naturally, this was at the peak of fly season, and the wound was impossible to cover. My vet recommended Swat to keep the flies out of it, and I'm so glad I listened! It's expensive, especially for such a little container, but it works like a charm. I especially like the fact that it's not greasy, nor does it stink! The BRIGHT pink coloring is a bit disconcerting at first, but it does mean that it's easy to see when it needs to be reapplied... I also have a pot of the clear formula, for the times when I care about people seeing pink spots on my chestnut!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Stuff Is GREAT I love Swat.. Keep it on hand all the time..My mare had a nasty cut on her shoulder.. I medicated it and then covered it with swat to keep the flies out.. Works really well.. The pink color was fine on her, however I dont know how my gelding would like it.....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swat Rocks Swat is always handy to have around. I know that it comes in clear now, but I prefer the bright pink so that I can clearly see where it is on the horse and how much is left on after being out in the pasture.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Swat works wonders! The original ‘pink’ Swat is fantastic, although I don’t think my gelding agrees with the color choice. Since the product is colored you can see exactly where you have applied or need to reapply the ointment. It truly does keep the flies away from scratches and scrapes while protecting the injured area by keeping bedding and dirt out. Swat is a must have during the summer months at any barn!
