Anti-Coprophagia Treatment for Pets

For-Bid is a supplement given to dogs, cats, and horses as a coprophagia treatment and deterrent. After food containing For-Bid pet meds is consumed, the feces will have a forbidden, unpalatable taste.

For-Bid imparts a discouraging flavor into an animal's feces to prevent its consumption. It works for dogs, cats, and horses. This product is highly effective against coprophagia, which is the name given to the condition of a pet eating its own or another animal's feces. For-Bid works in 99.99% of cases of acute coprophagia, when young animals have been eating feces for about 1 to 3 weeks, and it works in 95% of cases of intermediate coprophagia, when animals 3 to 5 years old have been eating feces for about 1 to 3 months. For-Bid may not be effective in older animals that have been chronically engaging in coprophagia for more than 1 year. 

Benefits of For-Bid:

  • Stops the disturbing (but normal) practice of feces consumption
  • Prevents transmission of disease and parasites via eaten feces
  • Prevents bad breath and enhances cleanliness
  • Easily administered by sprinkling over food
  • Works simply by adding a forbidding flavor to an animal's feces
  • Almost always effective in cases of acute and intermediate coprophagia
  • Usually works with less than 1 week of usage
  • Safe for longer use when needed
  • Not associated with side effects

Keep out of reach of children and animals.

Store For-Bid at controlled room temperature.

It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

For-Bid is an edible, purified crystalline vegetable protein fraction. It does not alter the digestive process. Rather, its breakdown product is present in the feces. This substance has a highly unpalatable taste to animals, prompting quick discarding of the feces once it enters the mouth. With a few days of consistent use, animals are trained not to attempt feces consumption.


Keep this product out of reach of children and animals. Do not use or store in or near open flame or heat.

For-Bid is only intended for use in dogs, cats, and horses. Do not administer to other species. Not for human ingestion.

Follow your veterinarian's advice for using this product.

CAUTION: There are no reported side effects for For-Bid. However, individual sensitivities may occur. If you notice any adverse effects in your animal, consult your veterinarian.

Not for use in animals taking steroids. Steroids render For-Bid ineffective.

Undigested food in the feces encourages coprophagia. Do not overfeed animals. Consult your veterinarian about an appropriate diet for your pet(s).

Increase your pet's vitamin B and mineral consumption to help discourage coprophagia.

Coprophagia may indicate nutritional deficiency, stress, the need for increased attention or exercise, boredom, the need for better hygiene in your pet's environment, or other concerns. Talk to your veterinarian if an animal begins consuming feces.
