Not much to elaborate on here. I guess we all have our vices - is this terrible for him?

    No. It is a natural antacid and neutralises many factors that could poison him.

    Sometimes when I open a new bag it smells so good I could eat some myself...

    Charcoal is fed to livestock as a carbon supplement.......he'll be fine.

    I had a Mini schnauzer that was odiferous also. He would pass gas in his sleep and then wake up and look at his rear-end, then look around the room like "Who did that?" A buddy of mine had an English Bulldog that I swear could clear an auditorium with one blast of gas. And he snored like thunder.
