There are bunches of topical bad tasting sprays/ointments..Bitter Apple/Bitter Orange. Has an xray be performed of that area to ensure no internal or orthopedic problem is causing the licking?Also, before you get into medications to stop the compulsive behavior, there is an all natural product called Homeopet Anxiety (www.homeopet.com) that helps calm compulsive disorders and anxiety before starting drugs.
Hope this helps.
Yes..just place the spray on thin and blow so it is not still moist...then the bitter apple/orange.
