Activated charcoal?

Has anyone here ever given activated charcoal to a cat?

I know it's widely used in poisoning cases but I remember kids being given it as some kind of routine thing (along with cod liver oil and extract of malt !!) and I've been trying to read up on it - seems to be a lot of quackery and very few science articles.

Molly can't seem to shake off her bouts of yellow or orange dire-rear, she won't touch food with Pro Kolin or pumpkin and her daily potassium doesn't seem to be making any difference after 3 weeks. I will be discussing with the vet as I'm terrified she could go the same way as Boo, as we never identified what caused his issues, but just wondered i anyone has any experience with this stuff.
