VETIQ Stool Repel (Coprophagia Aid for Dogs)

  • Tablets » Pack of 30 £6.35

Description

VetIQ Stool Repel tablets have been specially formulated to help deter this behaviour by making the dogs own stool unpalatable to eat. VetIQ Stool Repel contains Oleoresin Capsicum, a lachrymatory agent, which deters a puppy or dog from eating its own stool by causing a mild irritation to the eyes and a mild burning sensation if the stool is eaten. It also contains the enzyme, Alpha-Amylase which breaks down starches, improving the animal's digestive performance. Coprophagia is a behavioural condition with puppies and dogs consuming their own faeces. It is a common habit and can be distressful for the pet owner and unhygienic for the pet.

Benefits

  • Helps eliminate stool eating
  • Palatable chicken liver flavour
  • Safe & effective
  • Coprophagia Aid

Directions For Use

Suitable for dogs and puppies aged 6 months and over. Give one tablet per 10kg of bodyweight daily for 2 weeks after coprophagia is first observed. If results are not satisfactory, double the quantity of tablets and administer for 2 more weeks. As a prevention, continue to feed 1 tablet daily. Increasing the physical activity of your pet and feeding a high quality diet may also assist in stopping this behaviour.

The popular Deter Coprophagia Tablets are no longer manufactured, but this is a suitable alternative.

Ingredients

Brewers yeast, Alpha-anylase, Oleoresin capsicum.

Remedy... GSD eating cat poo

Can Stool Repel be used in felines or is there another product or solution?

John Cousins

I am not clear if you want to stop your dog from eating your cat's faeces, or you want to stop the cat from eating its own faeces. Either way the product would have to be given to your cat in its food. The product is unlikely to be harmful to your cat, but is not normally given to cats and I have no experience of this being done. Personally I cannot recommend it, but you could try. Cats are so fussy it might not be possible anyway.

On a general note, many dogs love to eat cat faeces and although it seems to do them no harm at all, it is pretty disgusting to us. Usually the only option is to organise things in such a way that the dog does not have free access to the cat's toileting area. Cats very rarely eat their own faeces and if this is happening, I think your cat should be checked out by a vet for a digestive problem (such as exocrine pancreatic insufficiency). This is not normal behaviour for a healthy cat.
