Prevent Pet Accidents

Whether you’re potty training a new pup or dealing with some behavior issues with an older pet, Vicks can help speed up the training process. Sometimes pets get in the habit of finding a particular spot to go to the bathroom. Dogs do this to avoid anxiety about going outside, and even cats have been known to go outside of the litter box in certian circumstances. Once a spot smells like the pet, they are likely to keep returning to the same spot. Even after you clean up the spot, the smell will still linger. In order to eradicate the smell from the carpet or furniture, apply a bit of Vicks to the spot to deter your pets. You can also add some to a humidifier to deter a pet from going in a particular room.

While this is not a pleasant topic to discuss, at some point or another, you’ve probably had some sort of fungal infection on your feet. It’s the most common place to get infected, and while most of the issues go away over time, applying some Vicks can help speed the process along as well as take care of some symptoms. Simply rub the ointment on the affected nail and leave overnight. Clip the infected nail in the morning. Repeat as often as necessary.
