  Product Info   How to use   Ingredients   Customer Reviews   Q & A  

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).
FOR-BID
For: Dogs, Cats and Horses

 
Benefits:
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.

Cautions:
Be sure that your dog is not on steroids since this will counter the effect of FOR-BID.

Forbid I just started using it, and what a difference this makes. I have a small dog, and I am using about a third of the package twice a day. It really works! 05/16/2011
for bid I am using my second order of for bid.I have a medium size dog and a small dog and the small dog is the one that eats stool.I put it on both their food.The second order,I increased the amount that I put on their food on the second order.I hate to say it but the small dog and her name is Star is still eating stool.I try to get up all the stool that I can but it hard to get it all.I may try 1 mote order and increase the amount again,but not sure .I still have a few packs left.At this time I am not very pleased 06/03/2014
does not work for me. waste of money. 02/16/2014
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: 
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: 
For-Bid, when eaten, gives the feces a bad flavor discouraging your dog from eating it. If your dog is eating his own and your other dog's feces, then you should give the product to both dogs.

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: 
Each package of FOR BID is equivalent to 2 teaspoons. Therefore, 1/4 package equals 1/2 teaspoon.

Answer: 
One of the ingredients counteracts (renders ineffective) the other medication. I think it is the steroids that makes the For-Bid ineffective.

Answer: 
Steroids counter the effect of FOR-BID by interfering in the process by which FOR-BID works.

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.

This product is labelled for this use. Though with all the bad publicity about how this product doesn't work, you may need to look elsewhere. I work in a local vet clinic, and honestly all of our clients that have tried this product say it doesn't work.
