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.

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.

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.

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.
