Purchase: I found Bitterlicks by accident on the internet while searching for a solution to my horses cribbing. I paid approximately $28 (which included shipping) for one 16 oz bottle. The website indicated 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so I knew that I had nothing to loose. I wanted to try anything other than muzzling my horse. The many style collars that I have tried were ineffective for the most part.
Likes: I can't really say there was anything that I liked about it. It tastes absolutely horrible. I sprayed it in the stall and approximately 5 minutes later, my husband walked in. Just from being in the stall and breathing normally, he could taste it in his mouth and it takes "FOREVER" to get rid of the taste. I personally cannot believe my horse cribbed right over the top of this stuff within a couple minutes of my applying it to his stall. One thing I would like to mention is their customer service. I called the day after my first attempt with this product and they gave me some suggestions. Unfortunately, they didn't work either. When I called to say that I needed to return the product, they were very friendly and understanding (they even offered me another bottle at no charge). I knew that it wouldn't work so I declined and she emailed me a return authorization. I had that email within 5 minutes of hanging up the phone.
Dislikes: There is nothing that I disliked about this product. It was just unfortunate that it did not work for my horse. I will have to resort to muzzling him as cribbing straps (all types) have not worked for him either.
Quality: Nicely packaged and convenient to use.
Summary: I do believe that this "could" work, however, my horse is just a persistent cribber and I guess his urge is greater than his dislike for the taste of this stuff. I would recommend trying it if you haven't before. It's 100% guaranteed, so you have nothing to loose, and it just might work for you. Please note, I did not wear a mask while spraying this stuff. I highly recommend it. All you have to do is breath it in and you will be tasting it for days. Although I'm rating this low below, I would still recommend giving it a shot if you have a cribber.
Usefulness Rating: 3.15 out of 5.
