What is FOR-BID?
FOR-BID is a highly purified crystalline edible protein fraction which, when mixed with food and fed to dogs, curbs coprophagy (consumption of feces).
Dogs, Cats and Horses
- Safely discourages puppies and dogs from consuming their own feces
- Improves pet breath and cleanliness
- No reported side effects
How it Works:
When eaten by your dog, FOR-BID goes through the gastrointestinal tract where the purified vegetable protein fraction and sodium glutamate are digested, ending up in the feces. This gives the feces a pungent taste when excreted, and discourages consumption by your dog.
Be sure that your dog is not on steroids since this will counter the effect of FOR-BID.
Wheat Gluten, Monosodium Glutamate.

Doesn't work at all
We tried other medications with no effect first (most upset our pups stomach). This one at least she really seemed to love the taste of, but it has not affected her poop eating one bit. She still sucks up every poop she can, like a gross vaccuum.

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.

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.

For the amount money spent on this product it was a very disappointing result. I used the product as directed and still observed my dog consuming fecal material. It may be effective for others but quite expensive to not get lasting results. Not worth the money.

Worked after the first dose!
Our new puppy would stalk our older dog's poo and after four months of trying to train puppy to "leave it" my vet suggested adding For-Bid.He warned we had a 1/3 shot of it working. To our amazement it worked after the first dose! It's been two days and our older dog is once again enjoying some privacy and puppy is more focused on getting his business done.

Not Working so Far
I have a 5 month old small Beagle Mix that has the Bad Habit of wanting to eat his poo. I have a dog trainer who comes to the house for personal lessons and he does AMAZING with it all, but we can't break this habit! My vet sold me FOR-BID and I was really excited that there was a product like this. (I had tried Pumpkin puree but that didn't do anything)
Unfortunately There has been little progress after 2 weeks of use. I have added more and more powder to his food, but if given the chance, he will happily eat his poo. Luckily he sticks to his own, hasn't bothered my other dogs poo, or poo we pass when on walks.
I will keep using it until its gone. Without seeing results, the cost of $20 doesn't excite me to buy more.
