StopLik Pet Product

In my career I have refrained from the use of any type of shock on an animal. I’ve tested collars and had my hand go numb for a half an hour on a low setting and have always found other ways to address behavior problems.

For lick granuloma I have used elizabethan collars. Today there are soft collars as well.

However, the StopLik product caught my interest because of the complications some dogs have after surgery.

StopLik was designed to help dogs recover from lick granuloma, surgery, and wound recovery.

Available only through Veterinarians, StopLik gets wrapped over the bandaged area to protect the treated area (or wound) but is also used to prevent the licking of surgical sutures and  to prevent the removal of IVs, catheters, and Seton drains.

The battery operated product delivers a mild current to the dog’s tongue if licked.

I’d be interested in testing this product to see just how strong it is because I have my doubts. However, I am still looking for a good alternative to deal with the after veterinary procedure issues that surface.

Healing would be expedited if the dog patient can be deterred from licking or removing stitches and drains.

Those dogs who severly injure themselves through chewing and licking might also be candidates.

Fortunately, this product is only available through veterinary clinics but you can learn more at the StopLik website.

  1. I have a doberman who is an obsessive licker. Even with no wounds he’ll lick anything he can and if there is no body part of his own he’ll lick you..if you are not around I’ve even seen him lick the air around him. He recently was bitten by a poisonous spider and due to the poison much of the bite area was removed. He has gone thru every type of wrap, casts, herbal sprays to not lick,e collars nothing works. Finally was given a stoplik by the vet. His wound is finally healing and his depression from using the ecollar which he still was able to get to his foot is finished. Without stoplik my dog would be suffering.

  2. Thanks for leaving your feedback. Nice to know that this product was a good alternative when all else failed.
