Best for the pet
June 3, 2018
This product works. It is the best thing for applying to the pet itself, because it does not cause irritation or a stinging sensation as other products do. Oh sure, it needs to be re-applied twice a day in severe self chewers, but eventually, just the smell alone will stop the chewing, as you get the source of the itch discovered and under control, (or after a wound or surgical site has healed). No other product for use on the pet will stop the chewing as well.
Merchant Response:Thanks for your great review. So to hear that LickGuard worked for your Beagel!!!!
- It works.
- It is not irritating to the pet's skin.
- Works by bad taste alone, not by burn, or irritant.
- Since it is an ointment, it will stain fabric that it comes in contact with. You can limit this by using sparingly, IOW, very thin amount just to add the taste to the area being chewed, but it will stain as any ointment will.
- It does need to be re-applied every 8-12 hours, (possibly even every 6 hours initially) for serious self chewing issues. Also needs re-application after running through grass. (This does not mean they went out to potty, my dogs are active runners and players.) As the dog learns the smell and taste associated with it, every 12 hours is usually often enough.
- It is pricey if you use it generously, but sparingly is usually effective at stopping the chewing, if chewing is limited to certain parts of the body, such as feet and tail.
