gcv-border Posted December 22, 2017 Report Share Posted December 22, 2017 One dog seems to have an OCD need to lick our wooden floors (mostly) and our area rugs (sometimes, but not too often). I would like to stop it as much as possible. She has been switched to raw food - suggestion of one vet who thought her system may be 'unbalanced' and thus, she feels the need to lick. And I do not want to keep chastising her every 30 seconds. Alternatively, there is no way I could keep her attention for several hours straight as an attempt to prevent licking. I guess I could keep her in a crate more since she doesn't seem to lick when in her crate. Another alternative is to put a muzzle on her so she is physically prevented from licking. I have searched Amazon and found this muzzle https://smile.amazon.com/FOMATE-Licking-Proboscis-Postoperative-Surgical/dp/B071J6TTT5/ref=sr_1_14?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1513974228&sr=1-14&keywords=dog+muzzle Unfortunately it is out of stock. Any suggestions for another brand of muzzle that will serve the same purpose? The majority of muzzles will still allow the dog to lick, even though it may prevent barking, biting, chewing. BTW, while I was searching muzzles, I was a little freaked out by the muzzles that have ferocious teeth designs. Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
