Bitter Apple Substitute
Mario got an ouchy between his toes tonight. I washed it out, applied some ointment we had from a previous wound he had, and cut the fur around it short so it wouldn't irritate the wound, but he won't stop licking it. We don't have any Bitter Apple on hand, and the usual substitute deterrents like hot sauce and lemon juice obviously wouldn't work with an open wound. Is there anything you guys would recommend to stop the licking, aside from vigilance, that won't irritate his wound? Thanks!
