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. Stool Repel-Um tablets have been specially formulated to help deter the unpleasant habit of stool eating. When the active ingredients are ingested by the animal, they become activated in the small intestine and may help to produce a stool which is unpalatable to the animal.
VetIQ® Stool Repel-Um tablets have been specially formulated to help deter stool-eating behaviour by making the dog's own stool unpalatable to eat. Stool Repel contains Capsicum Oleoresin, 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.
Brewer's Dried Yeast, Alpha Amylase, Capsicum Oleoresin, Natural Flavouring, Di-Calcium Phosphate.
Oleoresin Capsicum - Is a lachrymatory agent (a chemical compound that irritates the eyes to cause tears). The active chemical called capsaicin causes a burning sensation and inflammation of the mucous membranes. This is the active ingredient that helps to repel the animal from eating its own faecal waste.
Alpha-Amylase - An enzyme that breaks down the carbohydrates, improving the animal's digestive performance. This should make the animals' waste matter less attractive to eat.
