For when the flies comeback in the Spring. Prefer this to sprays. I like being "hands on" with my horses.
Walter M on Dec 16, 2018

When mixed with Desitin, Swat makes a very effective treatment for summer sores that are due to flies.
Fleeta F on Sep 21, 2018
Great product. Stays on around wounds and repels bugs longer than any spray.

Jan T on Sep 3, 2018
This is a must have in everyone's first aid kit.
Teagan C on Aug 22, 2018
This is a one of a kind product that works fairly well. It has little or no competition. I can remember when it was about $5 a jar, now prices range up to $11. Looks like an area where some competition would reduce the price.

TERRI M on Jul 11, 2018
the pink past is thicker does not run down their face and stays better on wounds to protect from flies. We have a horse that will not keep a fly mask on at all and the pink past stays on great all day.

Does the pink do anything different then the clear?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I find it lasts longer, attracts less dirt and is more water repellent. It is pink, but turns white after a time. If you rub it, it turns pink again. I find it better than diaper cream for my geldings legs, he is incontenant.
Can you put this directly on a cut? my horse has a summer sore the size of a quarter on her fetlock and flies go crazy for it, so it hasnt been healing.
Paulina on Dec 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can, but you need to heal the fetlock. Can really turn into a big problem. My stallion has one on his sheath and it is an ongoing battle. You have to doctor it twice a day, with triple antibiotic and hydrocortisone. Then ivermectrin, and then the SWAT. Also during these times of flies, I treat my horses with ivermectrin in mouth every few weeks. Good Luck.
Will this burn horse eyes of it get around them?
A shopper on Jul 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is for wounds and should be kept away from their eyes.
I have 4 dogs and would like a large container of SWAT?
A shopper on Jun 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I only use swat on my horse's muzzle and eyes.
It works very well and for at least 24 hrs. I live in Ca. I've never used it on my dogs. I don't know how well it would work on anything but very short hair.
what is its performance for preventing fleas?
A shopper on Dec 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I only use swat for my horse and horses don’t generally get fleas.
