LickGuard is a natural unpleasant tasting ointment to discourage licking, biting and chewing by your pet. LickGuard uses a combination of texture, taste, and smell to create a no lick solution. Tastes Terrible, Works Great!

Essential Oil BlendCreates a "hot" sensation on the tongueFirst contact gives the dog or cat a bad experience
Ointment BaseClings to the animal's tongueProlongs the intense taste
Garlic & Spearmint OilActivate the olfactory system by creating a smell that triggers memorySmell quickly reminds the dog or cat of their bad experience


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.

    External use only. For animal use only. If animal?s condition worsens or does not improve consult your veterinarian. Keep out of the reach of children and animals. Safe use in pregnant animals or animals intended for breeding has not been proven. Use caution when applying LickGuard to red or open wounds as a stinging sensation may occur. Store in a cool, dry place.

    Lick Guard has MANY purposes! Original use for wounds. Did you also know that a small amount applied to phone charger cords keeps pets from chewing the cord! I use this on anything I want to keep a pet from chewing! Most of the time after first taste the smell alone will keep pet from touching.

    My dog had a wound on her tail that she would not leave alone even when bandaged. We put lick guard on the outside of the bandage and she would sniff it then leave it alone. It worked great!

    I give Entirely Pets big kudos for getting it to me immediately after I put in the order. I needed something to keep my dog from licking medication off a scabby sore spot between pads of a paw. My vet highly recommended this product. It may work well for most dogs, but it contains mint, which my dog loooves, so she licked it right off. Also, it's a little greasy--not great for wood floors and rugs if you have to use it on a paw.

    Works better than all the rest!

    Lick Guard is the ultimate deterrent when it comes to preventing your dog from licking it's wound. My female dog often had/has chronic ear infections. Unfortunately, my male dog loves to lick her ears when she has ear infections. This causes her to have even longer and more painful infections. She would also wind up with a UTI because dogs are dogs! I've tried many different deterrents but Lick Guard was the ONLY anti-lick product that kept him away from her ears.

    Lick Guard really discourages your pet to lick hotspots better than bitter apple or anything else that we have tried. Don't give up until you have tried this product.

    This stuff is great and I find that it is even better than bitter apple. Dogs hate the smell and if they do go beyond the smell, they hate the taste! For us it was an instant, lick stopper.
