This extremely bitter repellent can be applied on any household object or wound dressing. It is suitable to keep dogs, cats, birds and horses from licking their wounds or plucking their feathers. It also discourages crib-biting and wind-sucking in horses. Pets won’t ever chew on any household item again once treated with Avert. Word of caution: it is virtually impossible to get the bitter taste off soft items after treatment, and the taste can, to a certain extent, be transferred.
