Shih Tzu male still eating own feces. This product was not only an amazing waste of money, but the time value is also an issue. My 6 month male Shi Tzu actually found his and my other dogs feces to be even more "tasty". Additionally, when he expels gas, the smell is beyond horrific. Please do not buy this product! Worthless and very expensive waste of time.There are other products I've purchased from Pet Meds before that worked really well, but keep For-Bid off of your list. 11/29/2013
Works for my Beagle My little guy ( 5 yrs old and 26 lbs) has been eating his stool since he was a pup. I have to use this product frequently so I have found a dose (smaller than recommended) that does deter without giving him diarrhea or other digestive upsets. I still have to keep close watch to make sure he doesn't ingest the stool. He does not like the taste of the (treated) feces but the "old habit" gets the better of him sometimes so he "nibbles" but leaves 98% of his business alone. I take that as success. 08/30/2013

Answer:FOR-BID (item #10475) is an over-the-counter product that is used to deter coprophagy (consumption of feces). Speak to your veterinarian if this product is appropriate for your pet.
Answer:It is my understanding that all the animals would need to be treated if one of the animals eats the feces of any dog in the household. The product makes the stool distasteful to the animal...so all the stool would have to be distasteful.
Answer:I had the same problem. I emptied a packet into a small cup and measured the powder in 1/2 teaspoon increments to give me a rough idea of what 1/4 packet would be. Then I would use the 1/2 teaspoon measure to sprinkle the product on the food to be sure I was giving the right dose.
Answer:One of the ingredients counteracts (renders ineffective) the other medication. I think it is the steroids that makes the For-Bid ineffective.
Or a dog food with all or most of the needed elements in a healthy daily diet? My dog is doing really well with Science Diet dog food. We found a place where they sell in in five pound bags vs. ten and it costs $11 per bag vs. $20 for the ten pound bag!
Answer:Puppies can start eating feces when they are young if they're kept in a place like a puppy mill where they don't get enough food, or fed regularly enough, they will eat feces for the nutrients. Older dogs eat feces either as a nutritional deficiency (it smells like food to them, some of the ingredients don't break down during digestion and they will eat it), or as a bad habbit that was never broken.
DO NOT USE FOR BID, EVER!!!! The best method of breaking this behavior is to take your dog outside on a leash, even if it's in your own gated backyard, and pick up the feces right away. if you have 1 dog, this is simple; but for multi-dog households (i have 7 and they all eat feces , so i know) it can be challenging.
i suggest taking the dogs out in pairs (on the leash of course) and clean up any feces as soon as they do it. Then go in and switch out for another pair of dogs until your done. This is the only fool-proof way.
Also there is a new product coming out soon from the PRN company, they make Proin for incontinence, that addresses this issue. Hopefully their product works better than For Bid, but keep an eye out for it. It will prob be in a purple and white bottle.
