Last week my vet told me garlic and onions can be toxic to dogs and can cause kidney failure. (08/05/2008)
When we wintered in Fl the vet told us to use a tiny sprinkle of garlic powder in their water. (08/05/2008)
Please be careful giving your dogs garlic. It can build up a toxin in their bodies that can be deadly. Check with your vet as to how much is too much. He or she may tell you to stop using it altogether. Beware also of onions, chocolate, grapes, raisins and macadamia nuts. (08/05/2008)
I give my long haired dachshund a small piece cut from one clove of garlic once a week. He loves it and it keeps the fleas away. (08/05/2008)
I have a better solution. I had a problem with fleas for my cats and the websites all said that brewers yeast in their food and a bit of vinegar in their water is the best solution. But yes, chopped garlic mixed up in the food helps too. (08/05/2008)
I just spoke with my vet's office and he said 1/2 clove of garlic once a week is fine for a 24 pound dog to help with repelling fleas. (08/06/2008)
After doing some research myself on giving my dogs garlic for fleas, the info I have found says that garlic can be toxic to dogs. In many cases it can be fatal to dogs as well. (08/06/2008)
