It seems the "Lickimat" cannot be stopped, the hit product has just won 'Best Dog Accessory' at last weekends PATS show.
Our Lickimat has just won 'New Product Award at PATS Telford' this week, and already this innovative item is on track to becoming the next bestseller in pet stores.
Lickimats are designed as tasty boredom busters for a cat or dog. By spreading a pet's favourite soft treat over the surface, an owner can create a tasty fun game with them having to seek out every morsel with their tongue.
Owners can even freeze treats in the summer for a refreshing, longer lasting entertainment. They also work well as a slow feeder for cats.
Here are some of the benefits of the Lickimat:
Repetitive licking is soothing for your pet, releasing calming the hormone cortisol into the body
Medical free way to promote calm behaviour in your pet while home alone or during stressful times, like storms or fireworks, also great for calming pets before a procedure/treatment at the vets or groomers
No over feeding because Lickimat makes a small tasty treat last longer
Licking enhances the sense of taste, allowing pet to enjoy just a small amount of food
Helps promote fresh breath by scraping off bacteria and undigested food particles from the tongue
