StopLik Deterrent Aid is a unique, immediate, simple, effective and safe means of discouraging a pet from the licking that causes lick granuloma or aggravates a wound, delaying healing. StopLik stops the habitual licking that can cause open sores. It also discourages pets from removing bandages during healing, allowing the open sores to be more successfully treated.
StopLik wraps around a bandaged leg or torso to protect the bandage and wound, and delivers a mild electric stimulus to the tongue when the pet licks it.
StopLik is designed to be applied over the top of a bandage. A cohesive flex wrap type bandage or breathable veterinary tape is recommended.
At application, be sure the StopLik strip completely covers the bandage to prevent the pet from loosening or removing it. Do not apply StopLik directly to animal or wound site.
To activate StopLik:
Remove brown paper backing from the front of the strip on the battery end.
Fold end over, so the B symbol is placed onto the top of the battery. The target holes should line up to each other. Press material firmly onto and around the battery to ensure activation.
For leg applications:
Remove the white paper backing material from the StopLik.
Apply StopLik over the bandage starting with the battery end, wrapping around the bandage and back over itself, just past the battery, allowing a 1-inch overlap. Trim off excess material with scissors so the breathe holes are not sealed off.
For other applications:
For other than leg applications, fold battery end back onto the adhesive on the backside of StopLik. Now StopLik is ready to be applied to the bandage area.
StopLik can be trimmed to length from the opposite end of the batteries.
StopLik can be applied to discourage pets from removing IVs, urinary catheters, Seton drains or pulling at bandaged abdominal surgical sites.
We have a dog who gives herself severe lick granulomas on her front legs. She has in the past created deep wounds, right into muscle layers. For a time, she was constantly on antibiotics because of the infections that developed. We tried everything....coning her (cone of shame) for weeks on end, steroid treatments, antianxiety medications, every different wrap under the sun, bitter spray, surgery to try to remove the inflammatory tissue, ETC. Absolutely nothing worked. Out of desperation, I searched the internet and found this product. And.....it WORKS for us! She'll probably spend the rest of her life with her two front legs gift wrapped in purple Stoplik wraps. We've tried several trials without the wraps, but she just goes back to her old bad habits.

Found a cure! by Michele from Weaverville, NC10/17/2013
My dog has obsessive behaviors, including keeping raw an area on his leg that was shaved for an IV when he had his teeth cleaned. Teeth cleaning occurred in March and the area was not healed until three weeks ago. Upon recommendation from his vet, I purchased the Stoplik strip to deter his licking. It worked! My only concern is that it is self sticking and there was no way to take it apart to re-cover the sore with a protection pad. Would buy again!

Stopped the Licking by Puppy Mom02/27/2014
After 6 weeks of having my 85 lb. lab in an E-Collar, I was at my wits end. She figured out ways to crush the collar and contort her body (sometimes with the aid of furniture!) to reach and lick a spot on her leg. My vet recommended the stoplik as a humane alternative. I was skeptical, but agreed to try it. Before I put it on my dog, I touched my tongue to it, just to see how much of a shock it delivered. I'd say it's about the same as a joy-buzzer. Not pleasant, but no lasting damage. And it worked! The only drawback, the battery wears out quickly, and my dog would chew through the band. I bought several from Entirely Pets at a reasonable price and received them quickly. It took a couple weeks for the original wound to heal, but it did heal this time!

After catheters were removed in December, a wound developed that Bruce wouldn't stop licking. He lived in a cone for months (very inconvenient for all of us) and pulled off a number of different wraps/bandages. Every time the wound healed I would trust him and he would get at it again!
