What are the benefits of activated charcoal for dogs?
Your dog’s natural teeth whitening tool. Activated charcoal is one of the best ways to get rid of any type of toxicity in your body, and it does so by adsorbing a chemical or toxicant. It's administered when a dog ingests poisons, chemicals or bacterial toxins for example. What many people don't know is that enterohepatic recirculation can happen with some compounds that are metabolised by the liver - these metabolites end up getting emptied into bile which then reabsorbs them in their small intestines! Activated charcoal is a great way to rid your dog’s body of any toxins which they may have consumed (e.g. your missing sock). Activated charcoal binds to the toxic substance which decreases the risk of your dog suffering from any potentially poisonous substance.
