It is widely recommended by dog behaviourists and vets worldwide and ideal to use before a procedure/treatment, e.g. vets or dog groomers. We also offer the LickiMat UFO for an out-of-the-world experience you can use in the bath. A medical-free way to encourage and promote calming behaviour in your dog or cat during stressful times, fireworks nights, and Storms,
Licking plays an essential part in dogs. When your dog licks, it realises dopamine in the brain( a feel-good hormone). This licking often helps them to feel calm and relaxed. They feel less stressed out and much happier.
How does LickiMAT reduce anxiety & Boredom? BOREDOM-reducing destruction behaviours: LickiMat helps to calm and soothe your dog or cat as they enjoy their special treats. By releasing endorphins through the promotion of licking. Great for when you leave home, for stressful times such as vet visits, bath time, nail clipping, injury recovery, in climate weather, and fireworks night/bomb fire night. Please oversee your dog/ cat when first introducing them to LickiMat for the first time.
TUFF & CHEW RESILIENT: The LickiMat Tuff is specially designed for teething puppies and power-chewing dogs that will chew through anything they can get their paws on; it's also convenient to use the dishwasher after use. You should also supervise and train all puppies and power chewers.
We recommend these products for CATSOR DOGS: LickiMat is known for its distinct textured patterns that are designed to please the tongue of all dogs and cats that work with a range of treats and toppers, ranging from RAW food, peanut butter or baby food and a manner of spreadable pastes foods, wet, dry or liquid foods for dogs. Often the licking action enhances the sense of taste (as dogs are better with smells than humans); many dog owners/carers use a wide range of LickiMats perfect for adding supplements and medications to treats.
PROMOTES LICKING: The LickiMat surfaces encourage pleasurable licking for dogs or cats. The licking action generates more saliva that helps protect and look after your pet's teeth and gumline; this can aid digestion as saliva contains positive enzymes like Amylase. The 100% all-natural rubber surface scrapes food particles and odour off dog or cat tongue, acting as a brush, and promotes fresher breath for longer.
Serving healthy foods
LickiMat products allow you to serve a wide variety of treats: yoghurt, peanut butter, puree, spreads and a range of organic healthy pet-approved foods.

Fewer calories, healthier treats for a more extended period.
SLOWER FEEDING IS HEALTHIER FEEDING FOR YOUR DOG/CAT: The LickiMat should promote slower eating, reducing bloating and improving digestion. A great alternative to slow-feed bowls.
