ReadyRESCUE™ is a life-saving oral detox solution specifically designed for our furry friends who have a knack for nibbling on things they shouldn’t. Utilizing activated carbon spheres, this home emergency aid swoops in to save the day by quickly binding a wide array of organic toxins before they wreak havoc in our pet’s bodies. Simple to administer by mixing with food, water, or a generous dollop of peanut butter if you really want to make that tail wag.
Even if you aren’t sure what your pet ingested, if anything, ReadyRESCUE™ is still safe to give to your pet. It will work to absorb toxins (5 times more powerfully than other activated charcoals) if it has to, and if not, it will pass through your pet’s GI tract without harm. ReadyRESCUE™ is a must-have in all pet households, delivering peace of mind to pet owners and ensuring the well-being of our 4-legged family members.
immediately administer if ingestion of a toxic substance is suspected > ReadyRESCUE™ is safe even if you determine your pet did not eat anything toxic!
give the amount of ReadyRESCUE™ that corresponds to the weight of your pet with a small amount of water, pet food or a palatable treat like peanut butter. make sure your pet consumes all of the ReadyRESCUE™
investigate the ingestion further to determine if your pet ate something toxic.
if you determine your pet did consume something toxic, contact poison control or your vet to determine if additional care is necessary
ReadyRESCUE™ works fast

from chocolates to medications, ReadyRESCUE™ combats a wide array of common household toxins that pets might accidentally consume.
veterinary-grade formula at home:
this charcoal technology was crafted by Dr. Cuddles founder, a veterinary surgeon, to create a solution that’s even stronger than hospital-grade detoxifiers.
prevention > cure:
the cost of a vet visit without the prior use of ReadyRESCUE™ could be more than double. preventing poison absorption before it wreaks havoc is much more affordable than treating it.

historically activated charcoal is created through pyrolysis (setting fire to) organic compounds (like coconut fibers or other organic compounds) creating a carbon rich char (ashes), that are then activated with oxidizing gasses - this creates a mixture of small and large carbon particles that are typically powdered and super messy. our activated carbon is a synthetic activated charcoal that is made to remove the mess from activated charcoal and to improve the uniformity of the molecules. as a result, it is more dense than traditional powdered charcoal, it is clean (because the molecular size is uniform and larger than those that get stuck in irregular surfaces) and it is tasteless. we call our activated carbon/charcoal advanced to differentiate it from the traditional charcoal. because our activated charcoal is clean, dense (6x more dense than the most common charcoal used in hospitals today) and tasteless, it is easy to administer consistently at home (less volume, and no mess). additionally, it has an increased purity and has a shelf life that is 3x many traditional activated charcoals.
the FDA does not officially regulate medical devices, which is ReadyRESCUE™ classification since it does not alter the internal functions of the body, but merely passes through toxins in tow. that being said, ReadyRESCUE™ was crafted following all rules and recommendations of the FDA by our CEO, a board certified veterinary surgeon, and our veterinary advisors, including a board certified anesthesia & critical care veterinary specialist and a board certified internal medicine doctor with a masters in toxicology & pharmacology. rest assured there is ample medical rationale and expertise behind our products that make them safe and effective for your pets.
although hydrogen peroxide is a common method for inducing vomiting when an animal has ingested a toxin, our veterinary specialist advisory panel does not recommend this method over ReadyRESCUE™. immediate activated charcoal administration has been shown to be the most effective remedy for absorbing toxins quickly and safely before other methods advised by your veterinary team or poison hotline.
in addition to putting animals at risk of aspiration pneumonia with vomiting, there is a lot of research that strongly suggests that inducing vomiting does not prevent toxin absorption, because it is inconsistently effective:
- Khan et al (2012) showed that vomiting induced by hydrogen peroxide only produced the toxicant in 60% of cases. and when it did work, it only produced on average 45% of the toxicant, leaving 55% to be absorbed by the body.
- two separate studies performed by Abdallah Tye et al (1967) and Tandberg and Murphy (1989) showed that when apomorphine ( a more effective vomiting agent used in hospitals) was used to make animals vomit, the experimental toxicant (a barium tracer) was only recovered in 54% and 47% of animals.
- the lack of efficacy of vomiting for consistently producing toxin from stomachs was also found in humans where apomorphine and syrup of ipecac only produced toxicants in the vomit of 31 and 28% of children respectively.
when evaluating the literature, inducing vomiting is not as effective as administering activated charcoal at home, prior to seeking veterinary care.
ReadyRESCUE™ 's creation and medical rationale has been overseen by our founder and board certified veterinary surgeon, Dr. Mat Glassman. in addition to his expertise and credentials, the ReadyRESCUE™ product development has been guided by our Dr. Cuddles advisors, Dr. Benjamin Brainard (Veterinary Board Certifications in Anesthesia and Emergency and Critical Care) and Dr. JD Foster (Masters in Pharmacology and Toxicology, and Veterinary Board Certification in Internal Medicine, including Nephrology, Urology and Dialysis). ReadyRESCUE™ has been tested with common intoxicants and found to be equally effective to activated charcoal and Toxiban (the most common in hospital activated charcoal) by weight. ReadyRESCUE™ was also tested in house and by a third party for impurities.
the active ingredient in ReadyRESCUE™ has been used in dialysis tubing to purify blood and remove toxins in patients that have poisons and toxins already absorbed by the body. as a result the level of scrutiny and purity of this product is leaps and bounds above a typical oral activated charcoal.

ReadyRESCUE™ is supported by 50+ years of activated charcoal research in both human and animal medicine. there is so much research that there are multiple text books written about activated charcoal for medicinal purposes. ReadyRESCUE™ is a synthetic and more advanced form of activated charcoal, that is cleaner, more dense, and without additional ingredients which make it easy to administer, and incredibly safe to use.
we do not recommend making you pet vomit prior to ReadyRESCUE™ administration for several reasons:
- first, ReadyRESCUE™ needs to be in your pets stomach ASAP to bind the toxin and prevent adsorption. vomiting takes 5-15 minutes to initiate and lasts for 45 minutes. if you were to delay ReadyRESCUE™ administration by 1 hour there could be a fair amount of toxin absorption by the body during that time.
- second, vomiting is an inconsistent mode of stomach decontamination- it only works 60% of the time (to remove any toxin) and when it does work, it only removes on average 45% of the toxin. that means that 40% of the time, it does not work at all, and 60% of the time, it leaves 55% of the toxin in the body to be absorbed. ReadyRESCUE™, on the other hand, takes 2-5 minutes for a pet to eat, begins working immediately, and works in the stomach and the intestines.
- third, there are many side effects of making an animal vomit, including pneumonia, esophageal burns and generally making them feel like they have food poisoning for as much as an hour. ReadyRESCUE™ does not have any of these negative side effects.
unlike other traditional activated charcoals, ReadyRESCUE is incredibly clean and made from pure carbon, excluding the primary ingredient (sorbitol) that can cause imbalanced sodium levels.
activated charcoal products containing sorbitol should be used under the direction of a veterinarian due to the cathartic activity that can result in dehydration and hypernatremia. luckily, since ReadyRESCUE™ excludes sorbitol and other additives, at-home administration is safe & easy. head to our blog to learn more about what sets ReadyRESCUE™ apart from traditional activated charcoals.
