SWAT® Original Fly Repellent Ointment is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Got this when I noticed my horse getting a raw spot on her belly from flies. Got this stuff and put it on for a few days and it pretty much healed it. Kinda like This is a fly repellent and neosporin for horses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swat Fly Ointment Works great for repelling flies from wounds. I'm glad that it now comes in pink and clear.
Date published: 2016-09-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps flies at bay I use this around my horses eyes and down his midline where flies and gnats like to congregate. It keeps flies and gnats from landing and bothering him. I prefer the pink swat over the clear because it is easier to see when it has rubbed off and I need to reapply. I gave it four stars instead of five because it does tend to melt off in the heat, so I have to reapply it daily if not more often. Overall great product, and it smells good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use it under my mare's eye's to keep the flies away. It works GREAT! And I don't have to worry about the ointment running down her face in the sun!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never fails I have used this stuff for years on my horse, who refuses to wear fly masks. I just put a little under his eyes and the bugs stay off his face for days!
Date published: 2016-04-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff I've used Swat for many, many years. Flies are a real and persistent problem here in the Summer and Fall and Swat really does help to keep them off of wounds. I keep a jar in the barn and one in the horse trailer. I prefer the original pink, but some of my friends like the clear. They work equally well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fly Season Must-have! I've been using it for years & it really does help protect my horses sensitive areas- sheath, belly, ears, throat latch. Get the pink because then you can see where you applied it & when it wears off!
Date published: 2015-07-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still the best I've been using this for years, I've tried other products and nothing come close. Perfect for the sensitive skin of my gray TBx. I put it along his sheath and inside hind legs. Never had a reaction and it lasts all day keeping the worst of the bugs away.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pink is easy to see Having tried the clear before, the pink gel is easier because you can see where you applied it. Seems gentle enough, and although it's hard to tell if it actually works for repelling bugs, I think it's working.
Date published: 2015-06-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from use it all the time in summer as needed great for those irritating bites that randomly occur especialy in the spring under the belly area and inner hind legs.
Date published: 2014-07-25
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.
Date published: 2014-07-07
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.
Date published: 2012-10-18
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.
Date published: 2011-08-27
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 great stuff this is great to keep flies off of wounds....and it is also good for those little sores that are started by fly bites.
Date published: 2010-07-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works real well for our animals Works well for my animals, since we use your product for our outside dogs not horses, thank you very much , my wife and I are enjoying this product for our large outside dogs.

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.....
Date published: 2009-09-07
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.
Date published: 2009-08-13
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!
