Forbid is made from vegetable protein that has been purified and
crystalized. It is used as condiment on the food of dogs and cats to stop
them from eating their own stools or the stools of other animals. It should
also be administered to animals whose stools are being consumed.
Alpar forbid itself is tasteless and works on making stools unpalatable once
it has been ingested. Years of use have proven Alpar Forbid to be Safe
Dogs: 3-20lbs - 1/4 package twice a day. Dogs: 20-
100lbs - 1/2 package twice a day. Use for 5-6 days, you should see a
response after the first or second day. This will usually curb coprophagy
for months, often permanently.
Cats: 1/4 package per day for 4-5
If coprophagy starts again after initial dosage, give 1 gram
per day (package contains 8 grams) for 2-3 weeks or as necessary.
Points to consider regarding administration of For-bid
- Be sure you
are not overfeeding your pet because undigested food in the feces will
- It may be advisable to change the diet. In
other words, get something new in the digestive tract. Try a new diet with a
range of B complex vitamins as well as minerals
- How does For-Bid
work: You feed the For-bid on the pet food morning and evening. This food
then goes through the gastrointestinal tract; the breakdown product of For-
bid is in the feces. The dog is then sensitized to his feces. The next day
the dog picks up his feces and spits it out. The villa on the tongue are
reacting. Be sure the dogs are not on steroids because this will counter the
effect of For-bid
Types of Coprophagy
- Acute: This
occurs in young dogs, one to six months old and has started for one to three
weeks: For-bid is almost 100% effective
Dogs 3-5 years old that have coprophagy for one to three months: For-bid is
about 95% effective.
- Chronic: Dogs 5 and 6 years old that
have been doing it for one to three years: This is not coprophagy but a bad
habit. Here For-bid may not work, if it doesn't, try basic behavior
modification in addition to obedience training.
