Description

Coprophagy problem? try Nixit

Stop stool eating with FOR-BID.

Pets eating stool is known as coprophagy. Vegetable protein and sodium glutamate work in the digestive system to give stools a bad taste.

Directions: Simply sprinkle on dog food and after the food is consumed, this will impart a forbidden and unpalatable taste to the feces. This product is not an enzyme mixture which alters the normal endogenous digestive process. "FOR-BID" has been used by thousands of veterinarians in both cats and dogs without adverse reactions and with excellent efficacy. In some cases, the daily rations must also be changed.

Recommended Administration
Large dogs, the size of German shepherds, sprinkle the contents of 1/2 package on the dog food two times a day for 5 to 6 days (morning and night). This will usually curb coprophagy for months, often permanently. In small dogs or puppies, you may give one-quarter of a pack two times a day for four days (morning and night).
Cats 1/4 packet per day, for 4-5 days.
Horses, we have reports that 1 1/2 packs, morning noon and night for 2-3 days appears to curb this habit.


If Coprophagy starts again after initial dosage, give 1 gram per day (from the 8 gram package) for 2-3 weeks or as necessary.

12 packets per container.

Useful Information

Dr. Kidwell - Culver City Animal Hospital
After 47 years, I am hesitant to recommend any product but my experience with For-Bid is that it works, is non-invasive, is biodegradable and it is safe


Jeremy - Amazon
Our nearly one year old puppy had decided it enjoyed eating our dogs poopÖ.yuck. After using For-Bid, she stopped her nasty habit


Merrick Animal Hospital
No toxicity, good results, excellent palatability.


Donna - Doctors Foster and Smith
This product worked on my dog! She liked to graze through the cats litter and nothing I did stopped her until I fed this product to all my cats. Took a couple days but it started working. I also fed it to her as a precaution and she did not eat her own litter when she stopped eating the cats'. Did not use all of the order so have plenty for refresher and maintenance.


Mallow - 1-800-PetMeds
We gave the big dog 2/3 and the little dog one third of a packet two times a day. They were both rescue dogs with bad habits. Worked great. Gave for a while and the results seem to last. No more dog poo breath.

It may have reduced the frequency of my girl's poop eating, but even though I treated both dogs, she still sneaks a "snack" most days.
ProsIt's easy to give, both dogs seem to like it on their food.

Poop candy
July 20, 2019
We purchased after the vet recommended it for our puppy who kept eating her own poop and after a failed attempt with a different brand. She had no problem with me sprinkling it on her food and also had no problem continuing to eating her poop. The cat also didnít mind it on her food and the dog still stopped by the cat box a few times. What is with eating poop? She is spoiled with treats, bones, chews and toys. I try to pick up the poop the second it hits the floor and Iím often times too slow. Sigh... at least Healthy Pets had the best pricing out of all other places I checked online and provided excellent customer service. I hope your dog doesnít inhale poop like mine does.
ProsNo flavor Cat and dog ate it Great price Great customer service
ConsStill ate poop!!!

ConsCheri, It looks like you are doing it right. Keep it up. You will break that bad habit.

It's not a "magic pill" solution for all dogs, but it can work if you're willing to work too.
November 14, 2018
I brought home a 10 wk pup and over time noticed this intermittent problem that was becoming more frequent. My vet recommended the product and told me results were mixed, but to keep up with my training in conjunction with the use of it. (Which for me was saying "Yuk, ick!" when the dog was showing signs of eating the stool and a lot of praise when he looked in my direction, and more praise as he turned away from it and came to me). Some people are lucky, in that the product alone is enough to deter the pet from the bad habit. For my situation, I found that it made my dog slow down, sniff, and think about it long enough that it was a helpful aid combined with training. I did 5 days as the product recommended, stopped, noticed the behavior starting to come back so tried another 5 days and the behavior has stopped completely. The dog was too quick for me with the "Yuk, ick"/praise method I was trying alone, but "FOR-BID" gave me what I needed to have success. (It's gratifying to know my dog now finds me more interesting than his own stool...) Understand in some situations, there are going to be some pets at the unfortunate end of the bell curve that perhaps the only solution is to keep the yard picked up and the litter boxes isolated. Praise them & love them anyway - they're all yours! (Just don't let them lick you.) I do recommend giving FOR-BID a try, though. I could tell it helped in my dog's case.
Merchant Response:We're glad you enjoyed using FOR-BID Stool-eating preventative and that your dog had success!

Adopted dog is 10 years old. Who knows how long she has been eating her poop. Maybe this is not a fair opinion, since I don't know how long this is going on. We are now in the stage of a pinch on her food for two-three weeks. Not giving-up yet.

not giving up!

Not effective
May 27, 2017
I have this product 2 stars because although it was not harmful to my dogs and did not cause any adverse reactions, it did not work at all in my case. I used it according to packet directions religiously and saw no benefit from this product. I am beginning to think that nothing will stop this problem other than being hypervigilant in picking up waste as soon as it is deposited. If your looking for a magic cure, this is not it
ProsDoes not cause stomach upset and appears to be tasty. My dogs ate it eagerly with their food
ConsDoesn't work

I have two dachshunds, one is 8 and the other is a 3 month old puppy. They eat different food and the puppy likes his sister's recycled food... yuck. Forbid seemed to be working at first, but now has little effect. I saw little because he doesn't gobble down as much as he did before forbid. I'm going to give it a little longer... I purchased the 12 pack, just to see what happens.

Really works!
February 19, 2016
I have a nine month old Yorkie puppy and during his last vet visit she asked if his appetite had improved. I told her no he still eats very little except when it comes to my other two dogs poop and it was driving me crazy to keep them apart in the yard. She laughed and said some dogs do this and she had good news. It's called Forbid. She said it would stop this matter right away. Problem was, dosing for my 3 dogs would be between $80 - $120. So I checked online and ordered from Healthy Pets and I ordered the same amount at a much lower price. It really works! Directions are on each little packet and just mix with food. My dogs didn't seem to mind any difference. Loved it
ProsEasy to use
ConsKind of hard to measure We used wet food for the week

Simple Solution

While I'm still not sure of the results, it seems like a good solution. It doesn't prevent dogs from eating the feces of other dogs though. Perhaps if I pass them out to all my neighbors?
ProsEasy to use.
ConsDoesn't totally cure the problem.

Our poodle-rescue lived in his cage for the first 5 months of his life. He kept his cage very tidy, including eating his poo. Now that he is free to run and play, the habit continued. For-Bid worked immediately and the problem is solved. Great product!!!

I have faithfully given this to my small dog like the instructions stated. She has not stopped eating poop. This did not work and it was guranteed to work. Will not recommend it.
April 20, 2015
Have used as directed since I got it, over 2 weeks now, my dog still eats poo;p. It is rather frustrating to watch her after I have been so faithful in giving her this and it didn't work.
I do not recommend it. Really thought I would have this problem solved.

I have a little dog that loves to eat his own stool and our bigger dog's stool as well. There really is nothing more disgusting. Anyway, sprinkle this little packet on their food for about 2 weeks and it works for awhile. We are having to use the packets again after about a 4 month break.

Horses eating their POO!
January 31, 2012
Fori the first time in 44 years, I witnessed adult horses eating their manure. I am certain that these horses were doing do to bordem. They were horses that came in from a large pasture, to be stalled with a run. Within a month they started eating about 50% of their piles. Being a Vet. Tech. I knew about \"Forbid\" for dogs and cats. Someone told me that it has been used on horses. I ordered it and it does work. This vise is also learned. My horse who never did this, started doing it. I treated her for only 2 days. She stopped, buit started back up a week later. I treated her 5 days, and she stopped. completely. All the horses ate it with no problem.

I have two Boston Terrier\'s... both females. One of which is a poop eater. It\'s quite discusting. Anywhere we go if there\'s a \"good\" tasting/smelling pile around she always finds a way to eat it. Since I am gone 8 hours a day to go to work my dogs have free access to their bathroom and to their poop. I always come home ready to pick up something and there\'s nothing... until I turn the corner and there\'s barf from where her stomach got upset from eating it. So, I asked my vet what I should do and he put both of my dogs on For-Bid. It was simple: sprinkle some on their food and it will make them not want to eat their poop anymore. It took a couple of days but after a while the results were great! No more barf messes to clean up, no more horrible breath, ... yes it meant I had to pick up dog poop more often but I was happy to do that. I\'m so thankful for For-Bid and will use it anytime the routine starts up again.

I USED FORBID TO PREVENT MY PUPPY FROM EATING HORSE MANURE, IT REALLY DID WORK BUT I HAVE 3 HORSES, BOUGHT 3 PACKAGES OF TWELVE, FED ALL OF IT AT SUGGESTED. IT STOPPED WORKING AFTER A WHILE OF NOT FEEDING IT AS I SUSPECTED IT WOULD. TO CONTINUE TO BUY IN PACKETS FOR HORSES IS TOO COSTLY. I CAN\'T FIND A LARGE CONTAINER BUT PLAN TO CHECK W/ THE VET. THE PUP KEPT TESTING DIFFERENT MANURE PILES TO SEE IF THEY TASTED ANY DIFFERENT AND THEN STOPPED, SHE ONLY LIKES THE FRESH MANURE SO IT WORKED OUT. SHE IS BACK TO EATING IT AS THE BAD TASTE IS GONE NOW. I WILL SURELY TRY TO FIND IN BULK. ALSO, I SAW NO CHANGES IN THE HORSES WHILE THEY WERE ON THIS PRODUCT.
