I used to have trouble applying OraVet (Merial) after dental cleanings, but then I discovered that if it is warmed up before application, it goes on easier. So at the start of a dental procedure, I slip a cartridge on top of a heated water blanket and then lay the patient and its blanket on top. By the time I'm finished with the procedure, the OraVet is warm and easy to use.
