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 animals taste buds detect the flavor, 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
TYPES OF COPROPHAGIA
ACUTE - This develops in young animals, and has occurred for 1-3 weeks. For-Bid is 99.99% effective.
INTERMEDIATE - Animals 3-5 years old that have had coprophagia for 1-3 months. For-Bid is approximately 95% effective.
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.
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.
