Default Taste deterrent for neuter

Has anyone used a taste deterrent for the neuter? I bought the no bite collar for .Dewey, but it's not working out!! He has managed to get it off twice, tightening it to leave a finger space between it and his neck. Plus he is fighting it so much, I'm afraid he'll hurt himself by thrashing around so!! I called pet people to see if they had the donut , the lady told me about a taste deterrent that you put on an incision so they won't lick. I asked her if it would hurt or infect the incision? She said it has an antiseptic in it and taste horrible to the dog. Has anyone heard of this?? What do you think?? Laurel, Violet and Hardy never bothered their incision at all, and I used nothing on them. Leave it to Dewey!!!

I've never heard of that. Would he go crazy in a onesie?

I've only heard of the taste deterrent that you put on furniture and other things to keep them from chewing. I'm not sure if it's safe to use on an incision, but you could ask the vet. How about one of those things someone had on here the other day that can be put around the neck to keep them from falling off decks/balconies? I can't remember where I saw that post, but if I find it, I'll put the link here.

Well I'm going to go on the hunt for a doughnut one, I don't feel comfortable putting something on the incision. I think if he got the no bite collar off, and it was pretty snug, the onesie would probably not stop him either. If all else fails, I hold him for a week!! Baby in one arm, Dewey in the other!! LOL

Oh no! Sorry to hear the bite not didn't work for Dewey. We had to try 4 collars before we found the one! He is able to get it off with the harness fastened and everything?

Also, the onesie definitely didn't work for us. I know Dewey is as spirited as Gustave, I agree with you that it might not work for Dewey either.

With Deweys personality, he would probably LIKE the taste deterrent. (if there even is such a thing)

I didn't try the harness, maybe I'll give it a go when my daughter gets home. My hubby was trying to help, he's not very good at squirming puppies!!!

Perhaps it's a betadine solution?

Why not try the standard cheap cones most vets use?

ETA: And peanut butter might work nicely as a distraction when putting it on or when he starts struggling with it.

Good question. I just thought that they looked so uncomfortable, but might try it. By the time I gather everything up to keep him from licking, it will time that he doesn't need it.
