Grannick's Bitter Apple for Dogs has a very bitter taste that helps discourage licking, chewing and biting anywhere you apply it. It keeps dogs from licking wounds and hot spots, so they have a chance to heal. Bitter Apple is a alcohol based fluid that is very foul tasting and deters all but the most determined pets. The alcohol in the product rapidly evaporates leaving behind the bitter flavor without damage to your plants or toxicity to your pets.
This spray uses bitter flavorings, leaving an unpleasant, but harmless, taste which discourages your dog from licking, chewing, and biting on any surface it is sprayed on. Spray directly onto problem areas; avoid spraying in the eyes. Convenient pump spray with protective cap.
Shake before using. Apply topically. Avoid spraying in eyes. Repeat as often as needed. Caution: Keep out of reach of children. May stain surfaces.This safe, non-irritating spray can also be used to prohibit chewing on home furnishings, including wood, and shoes (but always check for colorfastness first)
We were doubters but this did the trick. We followed your advise and applied it to the leg wraps before we put them on our dog.
