VETIQ® Stool Repel Tablets
Coprophagia is a condition whereby puppies and dogs consume their stools. It is a common habit in some dogs which can be distressing for the pet owner and unhygienic for the pet. VETIQ® Stool Repel tablets have been specially formulated to help deter this behaviour by making the dog’s own stools unpalatable to eat. It should be used in conjunction with a training regime. VETIQ® Stool Repel contains Capsicum Extract, a lachrymatory agent, that helps to deter a puppy or dog from eating its own stools by causing a mild irritation to the eyes and a mild burning sensation if the stool is eaten. The probiotics support stabilisation of the gut flora and digestion while the prebiotic helps stimulate the immune system by supporting growth of the intestinal microflora. VETIQ® Stool Repel functions within the intestine by making your dog’s stool less tasty, therefore, it will not deter dogs from eating other dog’s stools.
- Pre & Probiotics to help support digestion and a strong immune system.
- Helps eliminate stool eating.
- Makes stools less palatable.
- Effective behaviour aid.
Frequently Asked Questions
I gave my dog two tablets yesterday and since then he has had diarrhoea. Is this a side effect of Stool repel and is it is safe to continue to give him the tablets?
I read that Stool Repel is for puppies over 6 months old and I wondered why?
We have tried the Stool Repel product but has not had any results.
Answer: The Stool Repel product is an aid to be used with behaviour training, it is unlikely to break a pets habit without that. If this is not working so far, it would be sensible to try a diet change. For persistent cases this often helps. Avoiding wet food totally and feeding dry only, the customer wants to go for highly digestible diets such as Collards, Proplan, Hills Essentials, (Super premium dry food). These types of food provide a small, stool that does not particularly smell (especially the Collards) and is therefore not particularly attractive to the dog. As the dog is only going for a fresh stool it is probably the smell that is the attraction. It is also worth her asking her puppy class trainer to help to teach her dog leave.
