- Apply the cream or lotion.
- You must monitor your pet to ensure that the collar is secure and working properly.
- A bandage can be used to cover your pet’s wound or skin. Cover the skin area with a bandage to stop your pet from licking creams or lotions. You should:
- Apply the cream to your pet.
- Use a bandage to cover the area.
- You should change the bandage frequently if your pet requires lotion or cream to be applied on a regular basis. The use of the same bandage more than one day can lead to the spread of bacteria and worsen an already serious infection.
- When your pet is tired, or asleep, you can apply lotion or cream. It’s also a good idea to apply lotion or cream to pets when they are too tired to lick.

- Everyone in the home and around your pet should be settled in.
A veterinarian may recommend that you apply a lotion or cream to your pet in addition to any medication that could make them sleepy. If your pet has suffered a severe injury or is in recovery from surgery, this will likely be the case.
Train Your Pet Not to Lick You Or Themselves
Use verbal commands. Spend some time training your pet to obey verbal commands and not to lick you or themselves. Verbal commands can be very effective once you have taught your pet.
Do not repeat the command more than once.
Do not yell at your pet.
Training verbal commands can take up to several weeks. Be patient.
Use positive reinforcement. Positive reinforcement can be used to stop your pet licking yourself or you. Positive reinforcement is a way to reward your pet for performing the desired behavior.
Use verbal commands to reinforce positive reinforcement. Reward the dog for obeying your verbal commands.
When your dog follows what you say, reward him with a treat or by saying “good boy.”
Use negative reinforcement. Negative reinforcement is an option if verbal commands or positive reinforcement are not working. Negative reinforcement is essentially a punishment for your pet’s use of the cream or ointment.
Negative reinforcement can be used in gentle ways. You can simply tap or touch your pet when they are licking creams or lotions. This can be paired with a verbal command, such as “no lick!”
Never hit your pet. Hitting is not a good way to train your pet and can cause you to lose them.
Be aware that negative reinforcement might not work if you’re not there. Dogs will often associate punishment with their owner, not the activity.
Talk to a trainer or a vet. For ideas on training your pet, you can consult a trainer and your veterinarian. As pet care professionals, they will have the most current information on how to stop your pet licking creams and lotions.
You might consider enrolling your pet into a training program.
Talk to a trainer about the problem with lotion licking. It is important to tell the trainer that you are concerned about this.
Ask your vet: What can I do to stop my cat’s obsession with licking?
I was wondering if I could apply an anti-itch cream such as calamine lotion to my cat. She has had a persistent rash around her stomach for several years. Excessive licking is what causes the rash. She will lick herself to death.
She has seen four vets, and all of them have been stumped. Tresaderm has been used, as well as hydrocortisone. We were however led to believe neither of these options is long-term. My cat might lick her skin until it reaches the soft tissue.
The condition may be aggravated by allergies to food, fleas, and other environmental substances. Itchy skin and inflammation can lead to itching and licking. Although itching isn’t usually a sign of the underlying condition, it is similar to obsessive compulsive disorder.
Exercise, enrichment and stress prevention are the main treatment options. You can feed cats with balls that release food slowly as they play. This activity can be combined with stimulation with a feather or laser pointer to help stimulate your cat’s energy.
Talk to your vet about behavior modification programs for your cat. One of the medications I mentioned might also be beneficial for her. Hydrocortisone and Tresaderm are similar steroids that have been used in the past to treat lesions. It’s unlikely that you will need to apply a topical cream continuously if this is the case.
