Bitter taste deters dogs away from site of application
Discourages dogs from biting fur and chewing hair
Deters chewing on bandages, wounds & hotspots to speed healing
It's easier to keep your dog's skin in tip-top shape when he isn't chewing on his fur. Time-tested Grannick's Bitter Apple Spray has a very bitter taste that helps discourage licking, chewing and biting anywhere you apply it. It keeps dogs from licking wounds and hotspots, so they have a chance to heal. 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).
How it works:
Grannick's Bitter Apple 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.

Back in 1960 a dog fancier visited Grannick's Pharmacy and explained that her dog would become nervous before every show and start chewing and licking his coat. She asked if there was anything available to help stop him. No such product existed, but in the days when Irv Grannick learned his profession, pharmacists regularly prepared their own compounds and ointments. He tried different bitter flavorings until he came up with a formula that worked. For some time thereafter, he gave his customer and her friends what he called "Bitter Apple" free of charge. Word spread among dog fanciers and breeders and before long friends were encouraging Irv to market "Grannick's Bitter Apple." His original "manufacturing plant" was in the kitchen of his home and his wife, Mary, wasn't thrilled. Over the years Grannick's Bitter Apple has grown into a full line of taste-deterrent grooming cosmetics for pets. Many copycat products have come and gone because pets soon acquired a taste for them. Only Grannick's Bitter Apple works and keeps working. Every day more veterinarians, groomers and pet lovers around the world discover the benefits of Grannick's Bitter Apple.
