Activated Charcoal is a periodic supplement and should not be fed on a daily basis long term.

If you are in any doubt about your horse or pony's health or condition a vet should be consulted. Activated Charcoal is not a replacement for veterinary advice.

Feed supplements should be fed according to body weight and split between feeds (when applicable).

Activated Charcoal is a complementary feeding stuff for equine animals. Feedmark uses nothing in the formulation of this product that contravenes competition rules.

Nutrition Information

Activated charcoal is the highly adsorbent carbon left after burning coconut husks. This carbon residue is treated to remove impurities and to increase the adsorption quality of the charcoal. Charcoal is used to bind toxins within the digestive tract and remove them safely from the body, as the charcoal itself is not digested. Ideal to feed to horses who have had a sudden diet change, or those that have been gorging on grass/cereals.

When is Activated Charcoal recommended over a pre/probiotic such as BioPro®?

If your horse has suddenly got very loose droppings, perhaps due to a change in grazing, then we would recommend feeding a course of Activated Charcoal. After this, BioPro® will help to support the digestive system. For general support of the gastrointestinal tract we would advise either YeaSacc® or BioPro®.


Why shouldn't I feed Activated Charcoal continuously? 

Activated Charcoal is the carbon left after burning coconut husks. This carbon residue is treated to remove impurities and to increase the absorption quality of the charcoal (activation process). Charcoal is not digested by the horse, but is inert, passing through the gastrointestinal tract and absorbing toxins. Activated Charcoal may bind to other nutrients within the digestive system, and so it is not recommended to feed on a long term basis.
