I hope you all had a glorious day today!! I was working with my old goatie vet today, and I picked her brains a bit on the subject of activated charcol for goaties... I know alot of advise goes out on here about using charcol...the concern is that the Plumb book mentions the use of saline along with the charcol to reduce the effect on the rumen..(there's more info on that part i was too busy to check the other books today) so you have to basiclly drown the goat in saline to protect the rumen, but the saline will cause dehydration.... I am wondering if any of you have ever heard of such a thing..or have any of you ever used charcol w/ no ill effects?? I was going to get some to keep on hand, and quite honestly I don't trust the medical books 100%, nor do I trust the vets 100%...Thanks for your input!!
