Can the spray be applied to a cat's litterbox (pellets) to deter dog from eating the cat-poop?

Hello, is there a way that someone can send me a snapshot of the ingredients in this product? Tks so much.
Answer by ChewyMar 18, 2021
The ingredients in this product include water, isopropyl alcohol, and denatonium benzoate.

Will the bitter lime discourage puppies from biting me?
Answer by ChewyFeb 07, 2018
The Spray can be used on your dog so it should be find to spray on yourself, it may not be as effective compared to spraying on items.

Say, hypothetically, that I accidentally got this on my hands, and then in my mouth. And say that everything now tastes like bitter lime, and I can't get it off my hands. What would neutralize the reaction?
Answer by ChewyJan 17, 2022
This deterrent spray is designed to be long lasting, therefore the bitter flavor lingers for a prolonged period of time thus discouraging pets from chewing. While the flavor will slightly dissipate with washing the intensity will remain for a prolonged time this is done on purpose so that if a pet lick and/or bites a treated area they will experience the same effect and a pet parent does not have to continuously reapply. Unfortunately there is nothing to neutralize the reaction but the flavor should dissipate in a few (2-3) hours.

It's certainly bitter......

I may adjust the stars if it works to stop Foxtrot from chewing cables, but right now all I can say is that it definitely is even makes the very air itself bitter. My room is currently a very unfortunate flavor of ice that fades, and returns randomly. I'm hoping this doesn't make my cat refuse to just enter our room though, because that will make me VERY upset.

Save yourself

This stuff is absolutely miserable. I got this to put on some items as my cat has a major chewing problem. I didn't even get to test it out. Upon opening the plastic wrapping, I got it on my fingers and wasn't able to get the taste out of my mouth. I'm too scared to even put it anywhere. Save yourself and give this a pass.

bitter lime

You were out of bitter apple so I tried bitter lime. The spray that comes out is a very fine mist and gets in my mouth and on my hands and have a hard time not getting it all over the kitten. The plunger is very hard to push down also. It does not deter very much the nursing on the genitals of the kittens. I put it in an empty bitter apple bottle and at least the spray is courser and goes where I want it. Still does not works to deter as well as the bitter apple. Will not purchase it again.

I made a mistake buying this!!

Do you want to experience an awful taste in your mouth that lingers? Then this might be the product for you. I should have read the reviews before buying. One of my cats has been nibbling at plants and the other won’t stop licking her belly so was hoping this would be a good deterrent for both behaviors. The product leaked a little during shipping and I was like, no big deal I will take it out and give the bottle a good rinse under water, wash my hands and be fine. Mistake. I then went to eat a dinner roll, licked my fingers and it was so bitter! I didn’t learn my lesson and later decided to put on some gloves and treat my house plants. BIG MISTAKE! The spray particles get into the air and all up in my nasal cavities, down into my mouth. About 15 minutes after my exposure, I tell my husband about the unpleasantness, and warn him not to go near the sink where I sprayed, he does it anyways and is now also afflicted. Time will tell if it works as intended as a deterrent for my plant chomping kitty.

Don’t waste your money!

I too should have read the reviews on this product before buying! I have a 3 Mo old German Shepard pup who has decided to chew on the wood at the base of my kitchen island. We’ve soaked it with this stuff and the only thing it deters is us because the fumes get in at the back of your throat and it takes a day or two to get rid of it.

Doesn’t work at all. Save your money. I sprayed it on my dog’s bed to prevent chewing, and it didn’t deter him one bit. Now Im out the money for this useless product and a new dog bed.

Not recommended

This product did not work for me at all. My 4-1/2 month old puppy has been chewing one particular piece of my wooden chair badly. I sprayed it and he turned right around and resumed chewing it. I sprayed it repeatedly and he still went back. This was a waste of money. Also, the spray is more of a mist than a spray, so it is very hard to direct into a specific area without spraying everything around it and misting the whole room and carpet. NOT recommended.

Not for the hounds

I purchased this deterrent spray because my one year Basset Hound Mollie chews on everything. This spray had no effect whatsoever on her. Time to try something else.

Worked for my dogs

I have a dog who likes to chew his paws and one who likes to chew his tail, the first time I sprayed them with this they both licked the area I applied it to once and then stopped and haven't been licking or chewing since.

Worthless and irritating

Not only did this product not deter my golden retriever from chewing on things we wanted him to stay away from but no matter how careful you are spraying this product you cannot avoid getting the taste and smell which is irritating and disgusting.
