10 drops Lavender

Spray bottle – 1 oz for large dogs 2 oz for smaller dogs – 2oz – 4 oz for pocket pets and birds

Mix all ingredients together and shake before each use.

Spray the area as needed 2-3 times per day.

If the animals wants to lick the area, cover lightly with a bandage, tee-shirt, or use a cone to prevent licking.

(This spray is safe if they do lick it but it does prolong the process.)
