By spreading your pet’s favorite soft treat over the surface, you create a tasty fun game, having them seek out every morsel with their tongue. LickiMats allow a medical free way to promote calm behavior in your pet while home alone or during stressful times, such as storms. Repetitive licking is soothing for your pet and releases calming endorphins into the body. Licking also enhances the sense of taste, allowing pets to enjoy just a small amount of food over extended period of time. Increased saliva production from licking can aid digestion. Lickimat Buddy, with its raised crosses design, is perfect for runny or creamy treats like yogurt, peanut butter, cream cheese or gravy. Freeze treats or drinks in hot or humid temperatures to create refreshing, longer lasting entertainment.
