I want to get a good supply of emergency medicine together for my goats. I was wondering what kind of charcoal is used to help cure a goat of poisoning and where I can get it.

thanx

Yep, that's the kind I got too. I've never had to use it yet, but it's really nice to have on hand "just in case" and it's a pretty big tube that lasts a long time.

I havn't used the gel stuff, but i imagine you can use one of those big 30 cc surynges to suck it up. I got one for tube feeding kids and i have used it for a lot of different things hundreds of times. Probably one of the best things in my emergency kit.
As for the charcoal, i have the rock form you can get at the pet store, i keep a small coffee frinder in my first aid kit as well. This grinds it up to powder form and then i mix it with mineral oil.

okay...i thought a caulking gun may be to big but I may see if that works when I get some. I have a feeding tube and syringe...I may get the rock form though...sounds good either way.

if you don't get the applicator gun, how do you get it out of the tube???
I was told a caulk gun wouldn't work.

just use something to push it from the end. Get a long stick or something when it gets close to the end. I have used other stuff in that large of a tube and I used a spoon handle to push it out.
