Better and badder than ever, Yuk-2e's wildly successful formula has been embellished with two additional bitterants to make it the most potent taste deterrent yet.
Developed by veterinarians, Yuk-2e is a non-toxic but terrible-tasting gel which contains the highest level of the most bitter substance known to the medical community.
Yuk-2e can be applied to areas around wounds or lesions to help prevent further injury by the animal. It is also used to prevent worrying and tearing of bandages, casts, catheters, prevent chronic licking, puppy proofing, and furniture protection.
Our male Chesse is one big tough guy but when I put YUK on the roof of his mouth and then on his open leg wound he stopped licking. Once in the mouth is all that he needed and using on the wound daily until healed worked just fine. The trick, I think, is putting it on the roof of his mouth first.

I put this on the wrap on my Dobes leg to keep her from licking and getting the tape off but even tho my fingers tasted horroble for almost a week,the Dobe ignored the taste and ripped the tape and dressing off almost within 5 minutes. Dobes are more headstrong than most breeds so it may work better on other dogs as the taste is really horrible.

Yuk-2e is great stuff if you have a compulsive licker. The sort of dog who makes a small itch or scratch into a red, swollen, raw sore from licking. Treat the problem (for my dog - allergies and occasional skin infections or scrapes), and use this gel to prevent further injury! I tasted it first. It has no flavor, it is just bitter. Not sour - bitter. Some people (and maybe some dogs) can taste bitter more than others; I suspect this will work better for some dogs than others. My dog, who will eat anything except for bitter-tasting foods (i.e. green bell peppers) got one taste of the Yuk-2e on his coat and abruptly stopped licking. I got a sulky look from him, but I was relieved. This beats putting socks on itchy paws at night or using clunky no-lick collars!

I recently purchased Yuk2e for my Jack Russell (Jinx) who constantly licks the top of his front paws and lower leg. The tube I received looks different and actually much nicer than the pictured tube on the site.

Our dog continued to lick the spot where I applied the gel. He eventually stopped licking the area. But I'm not convinced he stopped because of the gel. Since I have a whole tube I will continue to apply the product to see if it stops future licking. It's inexpensive so if you have a problem licker it's worth a try.

So my golden retriever had a fatty tumor removed by the vet around six months ago and she was constantly bothering the sutures. I had to take her back in once to have one of the areas resutured. I refuse to use the satellite dish collars on her as she knocks over things walking around the house.
