My dogs like the taste and the product is quicker and easier to use than powders or pills. The price is good and I find it as effective if not more so than other "remedies". Dogs act repelled by the smell of their fresh stool if on the product and do not eat. However, if the stool stays in the area overnight or longer, the smell diminishes and dogs with long standing stool eating issues are again attracted to the stool. I have tried many products for chronic stool eaters, but none have worked completely. It is a habit with these animals that is very difficult to break and can be caused by many issues.
I regret to say that these have no effect on my dog whatsoever after about 2 weeks of use.
My Beagle has an ongoing, chronic problem but this product alternated with a powder is very effective. Doesn't allow him to acclimate to one product so they both remain effective. He will nibble occasionally but 98% of his "business" is left alone.
