Coprophagy problem? try Nixit

FOR-BID stops coprophagy (pets eating stool). Vegetable protein and sodium glutamate work in the digestive system to give stools a bad taste. Directions: Simply sprinkle FOR-BID on dog food and after food is consumed, this will impart a forbidden and unpalatable taste to the feces. FOR-BID is not an enzyme mixture which alters the normal endogenous digestive process. FOR-BID has been used by thousands of veterinarians in both cats and dogs without adverse reactions and with excellent efficacy. Recommended Administration Large dogs, the size of German shepherds, sprinkle the contents of 1/2 package on the dog food two times a day for 5 to 6 days (morning and night). This will usually curb coprophagy for months, often permanently. In small dogs or puppies, you may give one-quarter of a pack two times a day for four days (morning and night). Cats 1/4 packet of FOR-BID per day, for 4-5 days. Horses, we have reports that 1 1/2 packs of FOR-BID, morning, noon and night for 2-3 days appears to curb this habit. If coprophagy starts again after initial dosage of FOR-BID, give 1 gram per day (from the 8 gram package) for 2-3 weeks or as necessary.

Useful Information

Dr. Kidwell - Culver City Animal Hospital
After 47 years, I am hesitant to recommend any product but my experience with For-Bid is that it works, is non-invasive, is biodegradable and it is safe

Jeremy - Amazon
Our nearly one year old puppy had decided it enjoyed eating our dogs poop….yuck. After using For-Bid, she stopped her nasty habit

Merrick Animal Hospital
No toxicity, good results, excellent palatability.

Donna - Doctors Foster and Smith
This product worked on my dog! She liked to graze through the cats litter and nothing I did stopped her until I fed this product to all my cats. Took a couple days but it started working. I also fed it to her as a precaution and she did not eat her own litter when she stopped eating the cats’. Did not use all of the order so have plenty for refresher and maintenance.

Mallow - 1-800-PetMeds
We gave the big dog 2/3 and the little dog one third of a packet two times a day. They were both rescue dogs with bad habits. Worked great. Gave for a while and the results seem to last. No more dog poo breath.

It didn't work. My 15 year old dog has dementia and has recently started eating her own feces. She still eats it despite the FOR-BID.

No Good

I purchased FOR-BID Stool Preventative for my 4 month old puppy. You should see results with thin a few days supposedly. I gave to my puppy as per directions. Which was a 1/2 tsp. twice a day. After all product was gone, my puppy is still eating his stool. Would not recommend this product.

Best Price vs the vet

I only need to use this for a week and my Chi stops. Works by the second day for her. She doesn't even know it's on her food - no flavor. The price was SO much cheaper than getting from the vet so I can afford to keep some on hand for when the urge returns.

stops nasty excrement eating
January 1, 2013
We've used For-Bid before with puppies and it works well. If you have only one dog, it's easier, if you have more than one, all dogs must have it sprinkled on their food. As it is a powder, it's best to mix it with some canned food first. It chemically changes the "outcome" and makes excrement taste nasty to the dump-eater. Order more than you think you will use because excrement-eating is a hard habit to break and it takes more than one ingestion of excrement for the dog to get the idea. We adopted a 10-year-old pug with a nasty doo-doo-eating habit and she is proving very difficult to break of the habit.

I know this stuff works

I've used it in the past with other dogs and works within days...but...
My latest dogs are simply poo eaters. They treat this as a topping for their poo. I really don't think anything will work on these mutts!

Working so far

I have an older dog that I could not break. So far this product has worked from the second day of use.

It works!!

Had a noise problem with one of our pups.This product seems to be working. It gets his attention and distracts him from barking.
Only down side is that he yips a lot and it doesn't seem to catch them.

It may take several rounds of treatment but this has cured one dog from eating feces. Now to cure the puppy.
