Are Charcoal Biscuits Good for Dogs?

Charcoal-based treats can help treat flatulence in dogs. Excess gas is unpleasant to both owners and their dogs (we’ve all sat on an evening exclaiming in disgust at the smells the dog produces), but before you rush out to find the cure to your furry friend's issues, it's important to identify the cause of the problem.

What do charcoal biscuits do for dogs?

Charcoal-based supplements have several health benefits not only for people but also for dogs. 

The charcoal works to detoxify and absorbs excess gas in the intestines and can relieve an upset stomach, indigestion, smelly gas, diarrhoea, and bad breath. While charcoal is not a permanent solution to flatulence or gut irregularities, it works to relieve temporary discomfort successfully.

Dogs who have gastrointestinal or digestive issues may exhibit signs that owners should stay on the lookout for, including, but not limited to, flatulence. Many dogs, like people, may experience occasional flatulence, but if it is prolonged or especially foul-smelling, it may be more severe than temporary indigestion. You also may notice loose stools that could be oily looking, and your dog may vomit.  It is then time to seek the advice of your vet.

PLEASE NOTE: Charcoal biscuits should not be used as a solution for dogs that have ingested something potential harmful such as dark chocolate, raisins and grapes. You should always consult your vet in these instances.

How many charcoal biscuits for dogs?

We recommend 1-2 charcoal biscuits per day - possibly one in the morning and one in the evening, dependent on your dog's symptoms.
