Rated 5 out of 5 by miniappleite For-Bid works
I have used For-Bid on two occasions with a couple of different problem dogs. For-Bid is a food grade protein product. Previously, I used it on my dogs' food to help train a new puppy to stop snacking on his new doggie friends droppings in the yard. I sprinkled the product on all my dogs' food, cleaned up after everybody after each potty break and watched my sneaky snacker very closely to discourage his bad habit (gently). It worked for the remaining 11 years of his life. He never again showed any interest in poop.
Recently, I adopted a 7 year old dog who loved to raid the cat box. So, I was happy to see that For-Bid can be used with cats. I sprinkled the recommended amount of the product on each cat's food (either dry or canned) for 5 days, kept the litter boxes very clean and made them as inaccessible as possible to my new dog. I found that my three cats acted a little confused the first time the For-Bid was added but they all were fine with it by their second meal. I only caught him stealing the cat poop one time during the treatment. He brought it into the Family Room and laid it down on the carpet and looked at me as if to say, "What happened?". Before For-Bid the clue had been a mess of kitty litter in the same spot. It has been about a month since treatment and I've seen no further evidence! If he relapses I will re-treat a second time with extra product I have left over from my last purchase. Because I am a committed positive trainer with dogs I find use of For-Bid to be not only effective but the most positive and humane way to teach a dog to stop a very natural (but disgusting) habit. Scolding or even possibly hitting only makes a dog afraid of their owner and does not correct the problem. For-Bid worked very well for me but I would suggest that others follow the directions by using it in conjunction with managing the environment and retraining your dog.

This has slowed down my dog's desire to eat cat feces but not eliminated it completely. Out in the country I have 2 outdoor cats that are rescued ferals I brought here and have since seen 2 othrs that are new to my home so my dog may be going after the other cat's feces and not my cats. Using the product along with the "leave it" command and maybe even a muzzle if I do not see dramatic improvement over the next 2 weeks may be what is necessary.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DrCheap Effective, but difficult to portion out for small dogs.
It is easy to administer merely by mixing it with regular food. However, there is enough in each packet for several servings for 10-12 pound dogs. It is difficult to apportion it equally. My solution was to dump several packets into a small clean prescription bottle and use a small spoon (1/8 tsp) to measure it out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MizC This product works for me.
Our dog developed the bad habit of eating cat feces. As he had developed food allergies this was a problem due to it throwing him off his prescription diet. We have been using For-Bid in the cats food for a month now on our vets recommendation. It has worked well for discouraging his bad habit and the cat has no ill effects.
