total waste ( no pun intended)
Used producted as intended. Did not work as specified!
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.

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.
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.
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)!
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.
So far, so good
So far it has helped -- need to see if solution is permanent
One of my Best purchases

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 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.

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.
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.
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.

This works well. I have a dog who eats his poo as well as my 2 other dogs poo and this stops him.
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.
I have 4 month old puppy. This product did not help me.
