Activated Charcoal as Natural Pet Remedy

Activated Charcoal is important for all pet owners to have on hand or at least know about – Keep it in easy reach either in your first aid kit or medicine cabinet.

*Activated Charcoal is used for suspected poisonings or toxicity relief. Activated charcoal is a type of natural “carbon” that helps absorb toxins that may be in your pets system.

->Naturally absorbing toxins may help your dog be relieved of potentially fatal or harmful ingested poisons. Activated charcoal has also been known to relieve gas in small doses! (Hmm…Buddy may need to try this out! If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the EcoDog post – “Buddy Needs Beano” for more natural remedies!)

Before you need it, it’s a much better idea to simply grab a tube to keep on hand. (*Check with your personal vet before giving your pet any size dose of activated charcoal.)
