extrememc, if you could be a little more specific it would be much easier for folks to offer opinions.
Sorta "Help us to help you", OK?

Are you asking about the photo only?
Did you retouch it in any way?

Without knowing what you really want to hear, I would comment, however, that the viewer's attention bypasses the cute little dog and goes straight to white and yellow bottle. Which I'm sure is not what was intended.

Your right on the container. I tried to clone it out, but it made the photo look unnatural. Some help with this would be appreciate. Thanks for you comment.

Without getting rid of the bottle it's going to be difficult.

I threw a whole toolbox at the dog and still didn't get a satisfactory result.

It looks like you cropped it some more. What I think might work is to add a feathered edge to it or frame it.

Hi Extrememc....... guess I've just thrown the baby out with the bath water by losing it all .......... not sure what it does to the "feel" of the photo ...... I did an earlier version with the container darkened and desaturated a bit ..... it kept the feel without grabbing the attention...... maybe you've already done that though.....

A few rounds of the patch tool (CS2) makes pretty quick work of that bottle.
