No-lick product for Dogs and Cats

LickGuard is an all-natural unpleasant tasting ointment to discourage licking by the animal.

TASTES TERRIBLE, WORKS GREAT!

Features & Benefits
    • Essential Oil Blend creates a "hot" sensation on the tongue   
      • First contact gives the dog or cat a bad experience
    • Ointment Base clings to the animal's tongue   
      • Prolongs the intense taste
    • Garlic & Spearmint Oil activates the olfactory system by creating a smell that triggers memory   
      • Smell quickly reminds the dog or cat of their bad experience

    Directions
    Clean and dry affected area. Apply generously where licking needs to be discouraged. Reapply as needed. For best results, when first applying LickGuard, put a dab on your pet’s tongue so they recognize the bad taste and smell before LickGuard applied to the desired area.

    • After Surgical Procedures - Apply LickGuard to suture lines to keep the animal from re-opening the wound. LickGuard can also be used on catheters and IV lines. Great for recently spayed/neutered pets.
    • Bandages - Use LickGuard on bandages and avoid the use of an uncomfortable e-collar.
    • Sores and Wounds - LickGuard can be used on skin conditions caused by chronic licking or biting, such as lick granulomas and biting sores.


    How LickGuard Works

    Step 1: Adhesive Base
    LickGuard's adhesive base creates a stable environment holding the essential oils in suspension, maintaining their intensity. The sticky base clings to the animal's tongue prolonging the intense taste.

    Step 2: Terrible Taste
    Essential oils along with citric acid successfully work together to reach all areas of the tongue - the sweet on the tip, the salty and sour on either side, and the bitter towards the back. These ingredients stimulate the nerve endings and taste buds, creating a unique, terrible, and shocking taste. LickGuard also generates a "hot" sensation on the tongue from cinnamon bar, oregano oil, and peppermint oil. These oils do not actually burn the tongue or make it physically hot, but stimulate receptors that normally respond to heat, thus tricking the brain into feeling a "hot" sensation.
     

    Step 3: Smell Triggers Memory
    Lastly, garlic and spearmint oil both activate the olfactory system by creating a distinct smell. Since smell and taste work together, the animal will associate the smell with the bad taste. In fact, taste and smell are so closely related that a dog or cat will lick or eat something based more off smell than taste. The part of a dog's brain that receives messages from the nerves of the nose is so highly developed that it can store up scent information like a computer. This programs the animal to remember the smell of LickGuard and stay away.
