Review 1 for Stoplik Lick Deterrent Aid Purple Narrow 12v (1.62"x12")
The ONLY thing that worked for us!
Date:April 1, 2014
Breed:German Shepard mix
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.
I didn't give this 5 stars because 1) it's expensive to keep using when the battery only seems to last about 2 weeks and 2) occasionally we get a 'dud' - one that just doesn't seem to work. And she rips it off immediately when we are not looking...$15 down the drain. However, even though the battery only lasts about 2 weeks, occasionally she won't bother with it for much longer. We've had several of the wraps last for up to 6 weeks. In the summer, when she swims, it's almost not worth it to use the wraps...something about the water seems to fry them right away...plus it gets really mucky under the wrap from getting wet.
Overall, though, we love this product. I would (and have) highly recommend it! We'll probably be using it for the rest of our dear dog Marsha's life!

Review 2 for Stoplik Lick Deterrent Aid Purple Narrow 12v (1.62"x12")
Stopped the Licking
Date:February 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!

Found a cure!
Date:October 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!
