Loved this as ReliefStick... NOT as *MADE IN CHINA* Itchstick!
July 5, 2014
I had purchased Petkin ReliefStick over the years for various pets of mine and had happily recommended it to many, many friends.
Now, I needed a new one for our new puppy. I discovered it was no longer called ReliefStick, but now was Itchstick. Also, it was no longer 2.5 oz, but only 1.5 oz. (barely more than 1/2 the original size!) at double the MSRP.
Still, I wanted this for my puppy as it worked so well for other pets in the past, but I could not find it in town.
I was happy to find it at PetGuys.com; I figured it was worth the wait to receive it by mail.
Today, I received the order. I was so disappointed and angered to open the package and find that the Petkin Itchstick was labeled with an American flag that read below it 'Designed in the USA"... what?... and then see the fine print at the bottom of the label showing: MADE IN CHINA!!
NO, thank you!
I will not use any food or healthcare products with my pets that are Made in China.
No more Petkin Itchstick for us.

Though, I am not fond of the sprays because the dogs don't care for being sprayed, I'll continue to spray them on to my hand first before applying them on the dogs. A bit wasteful, but much safer.
ConsMade in China.
Too many unsafe kid and pet products coming from China. No, thank you.
