The spray is actually called "Cool Blue". It basically makes the skin tight. It also lightly annoys the skin with tingling enough to keep the tail up.

Some people use alchohol to make it sting, then they hold it up. I think thta is cruel though. Maybe it was alchohol. Isophoryl (sp?) alchohol.

So it's the same thing they use to tense up their back muscles
Yup! I have used a little udder mint under the tail, and Vicks as well. Those work nicely without the sting.
