Pet owners and veterinarians have long-sought a more effective solution for animals with obsessive licking and biting habits and as an alternative to the e-collar for post-surgical bandaged areas, casts and other work needing protection.
Now, for the first time, they have one. Nurtured Pets, a company dedicated to promoting health and wellness for pets, has introduced Anti-Lick Strip Prevent ™ to the retail industry, the first product of its type that effectively deters pets from licking and biting granulomas and hot spots – as an alternative to using an E-collar. The Anti-Lick Strip Pro, available exclusively to veterinarians, is designed to be placed over surgical bandages as an alternative to using the E-collar.
The patent-pending Anti-Lick Strip is a unique bandage strip with an adhesive backing on one side and all-natural active ingredients on the other. When applied over a problematic site, such as a granuloma, the outfacing all-natural active ingredients are delivered through the animal’s nasal passages and to the tongue when licked, poked or bitten. The active ingredients are 100 percent safe for the animal, despite its deterrent affect on the animal. The strips are particularly effective on the animal’s limbs. “Anti-Lick Strip Prevent is the first product of its kind to effectively deter pets from licking and biting surgical wounds, granulomas and hot spots – in place of using an E-collar,” said Cindy Miller, marketing director for Nurtured Pets.
“Anti-Lick Strip Prevent has been clinically proven to immediately and effectively correct obsessive licking and biting behavior. This product gives pet owners the first truly effective solution for addressing this behavior since the introduction of the E-collar. Based on initial feedback, we’re quite confident it will be highly successful,” she added.The preventive nature of the product helps to promote healing and lessens the chance of infection, inflammation or re-opened wounds. In clinical tests, pets avoided the Anti-Lick Strip nearly 95 percent of the time, proving the effectiveness of these unique bandage strips.
Nurtured Pets will also launch Anti-Lick Strip Pro for veterinary clinics this fall. Anti-Lick Strip Pro contains the same powerful, all-natural ingredient deterrents but with a more aggressive medical-grade adhesive for use over vet wrap or gauze. It is available exclusively for vets on 96” rolls that fit conveniently under clinical tables.
