It was easy to use however...
this "For-Bid" was easy enough to use, however it didn't work. I bought enough to last longer then recommended as I read other reviews and HOPED it would work. I was outside every minute they were (I have 3 dogs, 11 year old lab, 7 year old chihuahua, and the problem child 5 month old choc lab), making sure the poo was out of site out of mind for the pup to stop this nasty habit. I did it for 2 weeks! Well, I was disappointed as it didn't work. I mentioned the issue to a Aunt. She of course told me to stop wasting my money, using an old fashion way of stopping it! My Aunt in Maine raised hunting dogs, and she had this issue off and on over the 40 years she did it, put a little garlic, and meat tenderizer mix on the food. (Her meat tenderizer was hand made).But IT WORKED. I use store kind "Adolph's Tenderizer" takes time to work, about oh, I'd say a week or so, IF you pick up the poo after each contribution from your four legged children.

Easy to administer
This seems to be working. We aren't always outside in the yard with the dogs as it's cold and rainy right now but judging by the amount of feces we pick up every day, It's working. We did notice less of the other dog's feces so we added it to her food too starting last Friday and today we noticed a larger amount of her feces too. So either they both were doing it or Sweetie started eating Gypsie's after hers started tasting bad. We decided to give it another couple of days and then stop to see if this has broken the habit.

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.

QUESTION
Is there any way to stop my two dogs from eating their poop???
ANSWERS (1)
Thank you for your question. FOR-BID helps deter pets from eating feces. When eaten by your pet, 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 pet. As the unpleasant flavor is experienced and the association to it is reinforced, the habit of consuming stool should cease.

QUESTION
Why does my dog still have fleas after using Trifexus? He was a rescue. He has been on it 3 months. He hasn't missed a dose.
ANSWERS (1)
Thank you for your question. Your dog can continue to be exposed to the fleas that live in the environment. If within a month after your dog receives Trifexis you see fleas on your dog, it is most likely that these are new fleas. These new fleas will be killed before they can produce eggs that contaminate the environment. You need to treat your home and yard if possible as well as give the preventative.

QUESTION
does it work for all poo with one dog or do I need to give to both dogs, even though one does not indulge?
ANSWERS (2)
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.

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.

ANSWERS (2)
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.

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