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.
Other products failed to stop the problem.
This is inexpensive and good to keep a bit extra for a follow up treatment if needed.
So far, so good
So far it has helped -- need to see if solution is permanent

I use For-Bid on my 2 dogs dinner for about 6 days, they don't eat each others stools anymore. I do have to repeat this about ever 3 months. I just watch & when they start sniffing it & going for it. I put this on their food for another 6 days. This is the only thing that I have found that has worked! Thank you For Bid!!
Did not work
Waste of money - did not work on my pugs.

Would recommend at least two treatments for a large horse. As of this date it is working.
total waste ( no pun intended)
Used producted as intended. Did not work as specified!
from Moncks corner, SC01/31/2013
Does not work....used it as directed for all pets in house and it flat does not work...
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!
not so good
from Temple, Texas01/25/2014
I give this to my puppy 2 times a day and it does not seem to be working for her.
from Central New Jersey01/16/2015
I tried adding For-bid to my puppy's food for two weeks. My six month old Pom pup was not impressed. I'm hoping he just outgrows the habit.
Didn't work on my dogs
from South Jersey06/12/2014
I have two beagles; one came from a puppy mill and learned early to eat stools probably due to a lack of food being provided by the idiot who ran the mill. It is a hard habit to break and now my other beagle picked it up too. I tried the product but it hasn't worked. Maybe it works for dogs who haven't been traumatized in their early life but not in my case.
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!
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.
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
waste of money!

from Charlotte, NC07/12/2014
maybe if there is only 1 dog in the family, this product would be effective. I gave it to all 3 dogs, but it did not stop the 1 from her bad habit.
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.
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 !!
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.
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.
Stop that nasty habit.
Great product at a bargain price! Corrects problem in short order.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Terrible stuff made the dogs smell worse than if they were eating thier stool in fact they still were
Received in mail quickly. Easy to mix in food. My dog is still eating her poo, unfortunately. Don't rec. I really wish she would stop!! She is such a sweet pup!!!! :)
Worked only temporarily
My vet recommended this product to me. It worked for my dog as long as he was on it, but per my vet it I was only able to have him on it for four days. Unfortunately the second I stopped using it the behavior resumed. It was not enough to break the habit. That being said I have a particularly mischievous and stubborn Lhasa mix who is quite something to say the least... and I believe others with dogs of a different temperament may respond better to this product
from SAN FRANCISCO03/15/2013
I GAVE IT TO MY PUPPY AND IT SEEM TO WORK FOR AWHILE. FOR US IT WAS SO SO.
It's worth a try
by Boston terrier mom11/15/2013
I purchased this product on a recommendation from our vet. I have two puppies and one was obsessed with eating her own stool and the other puppy's. I fed the product to both puppies. The one that originally was eating stool did stop eating her own. However the other puppy picked up the habit and started eating her stool. The first puppy still eats that puppy stool as well. So it seemed to work as a deterrent for one of the dogs but may have actually had the opposite effect for the other one. Maybe it is just dog specific.
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
by crazy bout dalmations06/07/2012
Really helps with their problem! Finally!
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.
DId Not Work On My Dog
Gave my dog recommended dosage for suggested time period and he still ate his feces. So, I tried again giving him more for a longer period of time, and he is still eating his feces. This product did not work at all for my dog.
Others said it helped with their dogs but it did not stop mine from eating her stools...
not so well
by no dog kisses
worked at first but not anymore my dog is back to eating stool again
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.
by Did Not Work
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)!
Not Worth It
from Concord, NH12/27/2012
Didn't work, used as directed but no results,not much else to say.
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.
by Harley Dude01/16/2015
Our German Shorthair puppy has been eating her stool since we brought her home she can,t wait to go out &eat her stool.Itried putting on the For-bid Sometimes it works &sometimes it doesen,t.If I don,t clean it up she will go after it.Kinda lost what to do!!!
from Edwards, CO12/01/2011
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.
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.
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.
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.
by dog man01/19/2013
you have a easy web sight.quick service and the best price i found on this product.
I was skeptical when I bought it but thought I'd try it anyway. It works! Problem solved.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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 Dal lover06/20/2014
I sprinkle this on our 2 dogs evening meal and it sure helps them from eating each others poo. I have to repeat about every 2 - 3 months, but it's well worth it!
from Fort Lauderdale, FL01/20/2014
First time I used this product it made my dog sick so I stopped using it!
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.
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
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.
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.
