Forte Healthcare Launch Charcovet Gel
FORTE HEALTHCARE Ltd is delighted to announce the launch of Charcovet Gel – an activated charcoal gel for the support of digestive disturbances in calves, foals, and lambs.
Charcovet Gel contains 30 g of activated charcoal in a convenient 60 ml, easy-to-use syringe.
Activated charcoal displays incredible powers of adsorbency due to the 3D structure of the charcoal particles which impart an immense surface area per gram of material. These adsorbent qualities have long been used in human medicine to attract and remove ingested poisons from the gut, preventing them reaching the bloodstream and causing a fatal intoxication.
Charcovet Gel is the newest addition to the Forte Healthcare large animal product range, and comes in a 60ml syringe. Each box of Charcovet Gel contains 12 syringes.
Charcovet Gel is a complementary feed for the support of digestive disturbances in calves, foals and lambs
Charcovet Gel is available now from all major veterinary wholesalers, or directly from Forte Healthcare Ltd.
Dr John Henderson, Large Animal Product Manager at Forte Healthcare says: “In young animals with digestive disturbances, Charcovet Gel uses the adsorbent properties of activated charcoal to support the gut in a return to normal function. The value of using activated charcoal in cases of digestive upset in young animals has long been recognised, but the difficulty and mess involved in mixing such a fine dry powder in water presented considerable usability issues. With Charcovet Gel, the appropriate volume of activated charcoal gel is simply selected from the graduated syringe and administered directly into the animal’s mouth. Charcovet Gel can be given daily as needed to support the animal during the period of digestive upset.”
