One of my Best purchases
by Calvins Mom
from Gilbert AZ10/12/2011
Calvin is one of those dogs who can't get enough to eat. He gets treats and toys but likes to sneak out at night and eat his feces. YUK. I use both Potty Mouth tablets and the For-Bid tablets. I just sprinkle the For-bid powder over his dry food. It has definitely almost stopped the problem. Make the stools turn almost black. I recomment this product !!
I liked this product.. it worked in just 4 days! I haven't seen my 90 pound Bernese Mtn. Dog take a bite of any poo. The only drawback was trying to get 1/2 a pack on his food.... all in all a good and effective product... I have leftover packets in case we get a 2nd pup or have an extended stay pooch visit.
As soon as I stopped putting For-Bid in my puppy's and his older sister's food, he started eating her feces again. I will try another brand.

I ordered this product as a recommendation by my sister, a vet tech. I have a 9 month old Bernese Mountain Dog who eats her stool. I went through all 12 packets and it didn't phase her. She has not stopped eating her stool even while on the product. I would not recommend this product. The worse part is she eats other dogs stool as well.
Not a short term fix!
While my dogs were on the product, they didn't eat their feces. Once off the product, they began to eat again. Not sure I want to add this to their food for the rest of their lives.

you have a easy web sight.quick service and the best price i found on this product.
from Lakeland, FL02/25/2013
According to the directions, only about 5 pouches are required to stop your pet from eating their droppings. I used all 12 pouches following the directions without success. I will need to try a different product.
Reading all of the reviews I thought the product would work. Well, sadly, I followed the directions and after 8 days, my dog is still eating his stool like I never even gave him the product.

Stop that nasty habit.
Great product at a bargain price! Corrects problem in short order.
from Bothell, WA11/06/2012
Works incredibly good for on both cats and dogs alike! Just takes a couple of uses, then they learn from it!
Yeah. It didn't work. I think my bassett hound's smell just picks up ANY food in his stool. Even WITH For-bid mixed in there.
from San Jose, CA07/25/2012
Purchased FOR-BID Stool-eating preventative for my relatives in Japan. They indicated that it was recommended from a vet in Japan. Works very well and have send this product several times in the past year to them.
My Maltese eats his poo so tried For-Bid when he was a pup.
He cost me $1200, is 8yrs old and "still" eats his poo if he is unsupervised!! He eats anything & everything that fits into his mouth (but good & loveable dog)!
SLOWED IT DOWN DID NOT STOP IT
MY YORKIE WAS EATING ALOT. AFTER TREATING HER,SHE STOPPED BUT STARTED AGAIN IN ABOUT 2 WEEKS, JUST NOT AS OFTEN.
I was skeptical when I bought it but thought I'd try it anyway. It works! Problem solved.

Really helps with their problem! Finally!

I GAVE IT TO MY PUPPY AND IT SEEM TO WORK FOR AWHILE. FOR US IT WAS SO SO.
from Barre, VT03/03/2012
after researching all of the options for this, we decided on this. it seemed to work for the first week, but after we stopped giving our dog the dose, he was right back to eating it again. we started giving him the second dose, as indicated, but it doesn't seem to be working.
fix the problem,kinda
this is a great product. It really does take care of the problem. unfortuately our dog can find feces ever where. So I wil probably be ordering more soon. still a great product
from Columbus, OH01/04/2011
We have dogs who have gone through phases with this problem, and this product solved the problem almost right away. It is not a permanent solution though for our Brittany Spaniel. Seems to have worked permanently with the Shih Tzus.
This works, but you have to repeat it from time to time. When they start eating each others poo, I get some more of this and start putting it on their food and after about a week, they stop and I don't have to retreat them for several months.
Not Worth It
from Concord, NH12/27/2012
Didn't work, used as directed but no results,not much else to say.
from Johnsburg, NY11/09/2011
This works well. I have a dog who eats his poo as well as my 2 other dogs poo and this stops him.
Very good product
from Woodstock, NB03/08/2013
I am pleased with the product, it stopped the pup from eating her stools, would recommend to other pet owners
After 5 days, still eating it...
I just thought I'd put a word in here because after 5 days, my dog is still eating poo. I am using 1/2 packet for each meal (Great Dane). My dog weighs about 125lbs. But I'll update after two weeks to see if there's an improvement. Perhaps an entire packet per meal would work better for a dog of her size.
Will Purchase Again
from Maple City, Michigan04/05/2013
Would recommend at least two treatments for a large horse. As of this date it is working.
my frenchie suffered 2 slipped disks a year ago. After surgery he does not have complete bladder or bowel control. I think he is embarrassed by his "accidents" and to hide them, he eats his stool We had success with the first package of For Bid, but are having limited success with the second. I am keeping my hopes up that this new, bad habit will end soon.
by Nesi's Mom11/14/2012
Not only did this product not work on either of the canines that I used it on, it made one of them vomit each day she used it.
Did not work
Waste of money - did not work on my pugs.
from Moncks corner, SC01/31/2013
Does not work....used it as directed for all pets in house and it flat does not work...
not sure why
from Camano Island, WA11/09/2011
I'm not certain why, but I don't think the product worked. We have a dog that has taken a liking to the cats feces that she digs-up outside (it is ONLY our cats...that I know). i fed both the dog and the cats the product, but did not get the aversion reaction that I anticipated from the product label.
total waste ( no pun intended)
Used producted as intended. Did not work as specified!
Works pretty well
After the initial dosing period, my dog stopped eating feces for about a month. Then, the process had to begin again. So, the product is not a complete solution. It is, however, the best stuff I've found so far.
there are better alternatives

Save your money. Too hard to know how much you are putting on your pet's food. No accurate way to measure unless you have a gram scale and how many people have those? I have 2 dogs of different weights and thus need different amounts. Found a product that is herb based and comes in chewable tablets that my dogs like.
Works while they are taking it
from Dallas, TX04/05/2013
I used For-bid for my mutt (the big brown one!) who has itchy allergies. He has to take a low dose of steroids every day, thus he thinks he is starving all the time and resorts to eating his you-know-what. The For-bid worked like a charm for the 10 days I had him on it, but within a week of stopping, he was back to the disgusting behavior. I guess I will have to get some more, but was hoping for a longer lasting fix!
Works great. However, it is not a one time cure. Follow directions and it does as it states. In fact it was recommended by my Vet.
from Scottsdale, AZ06/23/2013
This is the only product I have found that works with my habitual stool eater small beagle. I use less than the recommended so my dog does not get diarrhea. I have been using it for over a year. If I had found this in the beginning, I think it would have stopped....once it becomes a habit, it is a continual battle. As soon as I stop using it...he starts up again.
I have 4 month old puppy. This product did not help me.
Don't regret buying this product!!
My dog wanted to eat stool, just at times; but after the first time of putting Forbid on his food, he would smell his stool and leave. This stuff really works.
by Dog lover
I have a dual problem. Purchased this product from the vet for $24.00 which included 6 packets. My pup stopped eating the yucky stuff for about a week. Now she's back at it in a big way. I started it up again 1/2 packet each meal for a 33 lb. puppy. And it is no longer effective. Clearly I need to purchase my products from this site rather than the vet. Secondly, try a different deterrent.
not so well
by no dog kisses
worked at first but not anymore my dog is back to eating stool again
Same as the vet offers
from Sacramento, CA10/22/2012
My puppy started eating his feces & the vet offered For-Bid for like $40. Once we stopped, he went back to eating his feces from time to time. The vet again offered their $40 package. I opted to "look around" and that's when I found Entirely Pets. Offered it for $15 for the same amount. Even with shipping I saved over 50%. Anyways its took a second treatment but he doesn't eat his feces anymore. Thanks
I have more than one poo-snacker at my house and I have had very good results with this product with all but one of my pups. It takes a few days to see results, but my die-hards have stopped their naughty behavior. I find that it must be used continually, however, or their copraphagia habits return.
worked for our golden retriever pound pup
from North of Pittsburgh, PA07/28/2012
At 6 mo she had this habit when we brought her from Animal Friends. Our vet recommended this and it worked with ease! Thanks
Others said it helped with their dogs but it did not stop mine from eating her stools...
We have rescued a number of cats and dogs, all of whom live together in peace, indoors. The dogs do like the contents of the litter box, though, and we would rather they snack on something else. The ForBid works very well. You do have to put it on all the food the cats eat, though. Giving it to the dogs makes *their* poop taste bad, which won't help if you have the problem we did. You have to give it to the poop producer, not the poop eater! It did cost us $30 a box at the vet, though, so I will be buying it online from now on.
My dog was eating poop in the yard. She would run to it every time she would go out. After just 24 hours, she tried to eat it and turned away and made the funiest face. She is not interested anymore! I am happy and so are my kids. This stuff is great.
Vet Recommended and it worked
from Tampa Bay Area, Florida07/03/2012
My vet recommended this product for the obvious reason. My young dog was snacking on what my old dog was leaving behind. The For-Bid worked immediately. Just yesterday, I noticed the snacking had started again, so we started using the For-Bid again, as directed.
So far, so good
So far it has helped -- need to see if solution is permanent
