I've read it alot on here that using products like vicks vapour rub and similar stuff can be a good deterant to stop dogs chewing things.
Now on somthing like furniture etc....i can see why...but..
with a dogs amazing and sensitive smelling ability.......actually using it on a dog, lets say to stop them licking or chewing stitches ......wouldnt that be so overpowering ??? They wouldnt be able to escape from the smell no matter what, even if they didnt touch the area its been used on them.
You know what it's like when your overpowered by a smell...say fuel or some other chemical...i get headaches and feel sick after a while.
I'm thinking it has to be the same for a dog x 100.
Same deal with flea collars, not only are they useless but the ones i've seen smell weird. I'm sure a dog wouldnt appreciate it.
Whattya's reckon ??
