They do- Absorbine Supershield. They'll still fade though.

Well I was wondering if it was worth the money, instead of feeding a supplement if that would actually prevent the fading.
I just want him to be comfortable, and fly spray just doesn't seem to be doing the trick.

I think I did have some small success with garlic based feed throughs, but the flavors clashed so much with his other supplements, I had to stop using it.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

Natisha I did try a fan - but she's terrified of it. I tried just letting her get used to it but when the door is open she'd rather be outside if the fan is on. She doesn't get upset anymore with it - but just perfers nothing to do with it.
I keel her well drenched in bug spray, just curious if theres a good feed through brand or recipe.
