    Hi there, I see this post is rather old, however I have just st purchased some ‘comfort gut’ for my tb racehorse. I understand from the comments that it will help with any stomach issues in addition to helping her droppings become firmer (she has been rather loose).. after reading the label, I understand the main ingredient is charcoal and from reading about what it does, my concern is that it will absorb the vitamins and minerals also present in her feed and therefore she won’t absorb them? Do you have any knowledge on this? I am wanting to know whether it is s good idea to feed it or not… thanks in advance, Kim

      I’ve heard some good things about ‘comfort gut’. Yes charcoal can absorb the vitamins and minerals. When I give charcoal I always wait 2 hours after giving anything else. Let me know if I can answer any other questions.

    Hello Kim
    I have a 29 yr old horse with sever chronic diarrhea.
    The vet did blood work all looked good other than she was not getting enough food absorption.
    I have done 10 days opromezinone (I didn’t spell that right ) 30 days bio sponge now we’re on succeed we are only 2 days in.
    Still she’s covered with mucus and poo. I read your blog and remembered I have activated charcoal I decided to try I give her it tonight 4 hrs after her succeed I will try for. The next few days. I’m greatful to have read your blog it gave me hope if you can think of any other suggestions please email me
    She’s hydrated I give her electrolytes in her food and water she’s gets probiotic and salt her hay is Timothy and orchard
    I pray to The Father that this will be the trick . I look forward to your response
    Thank you so very much

      So sorry to hear about your horse’s chronic diarrhea. Did you try the charcoal? If so how is it going?
