TYPES OF COPROPHAGIA
1. ACUTE - This develops in young animals, and has occurred for 1-3 weeks. “For-Bid”™ is 99.99% effective.
2. INTERMEDIATE - Animals 3-5 years old that have had coprophagia for 1-3 months. “For-Bid”™ is approximately 95% effective.
3. CHRONIC - Animals 5-6 years old, that have been eating feces for 1-3 years. This is not coprophagia, but a bad habit. Here “For-Bid”™ may not work. If it doesn’t, we recommend obedience training, or the possible use of a muzzle.
POINTS TO CONSIDER REGARDING ADMINISTRATION OF FOR-BID™
- Be sure you are not over feeding your animal, because undigested food in the feces will propagate coprophagia. You are the best judge of this.
- It may be advisable to change the animal’s diet. Try a new diet with a range of B complex vitamins, as well as and minerals.
Be sure the animals are not on steroids, as this will counter the effect of For-Bid.
Dogs: 3-20 lbs - 1/4 packet twice a day for 5 days.
20-100 lbs - 1/2 packet twice a day for 5-6 days.
Cats: 1/4 packet per day for 4-5 days
Sprinkle FOR-BID on the food You should see a response after the first or second day.
If coprophagy starts again after initial dosage; give 1 gram per day (from this 8 gram packet) for 2-3 weeks as necessary.
When a dog is eating another dog’s stool, or those from a cat’s litter box, we recommend treating both animals.
Administer “For-Bid”™ by sprinkling on the animal’s food as recommended. If using dry food, it is recommended to moisten food with water before adding “For-Bid”™. This food then goes through the gastrointestinal tract, and the breakdown product of “For-Bid”™ ends up in the feces. The animal is then sensitized to their feces. When the animal next attempts to eat this feces, the villa of the tongue react, and the animal discards it.
You should see a response after the first or second day.
*Be sure the animals are not on steroids, as this will counter the effect of “For-Bid”™.
