I have searched the internet for such claims and it seems that garlic is an effective way to prevent fleas by feeding them to our dogs.

Below is a quote from www.barfworld.com
Quote:
Garlic is nature's antibiotic and often called nature’s wonder drug. There is no doubt that garlic does confer some health advantages. Garlic has been found to have effective antimicrobial properties, inhibiting the growth of both bacteria and fungi. Garlic helps stabilize blood pressure and gives a good solid boost to the immune system, keeping at bay infections of various sorts particularly upper respiratory tract infections. Much of it's success is due to various compounds of sulphur. Garlic is a health building and disease preventing herb. It is rich in potassium, zinc, vitamins A and C, and selenium. It also contains calcium, manganese, copper, vitamin B1 and some iron.


BUT i have also seen an article by National Geographic stating that garlic IS poisonous to our dogs.

National Geographic States that:
Quote:
"Garlic breaks down a dog's red blood cells, leading to anemia and possible kidney failure from leaking hemoglobin"


Dogs are CARNIVORES and not omnivores like us humans. They should only have MEAT in their diet. NO vegetables or fruits.

yeah this is true na hindi talaga pwede sa dog ang garlic to bad for them lalo kung maraming makakain, pero cguro in a small amount at hindi madalasang pakain pwede pa like un sa brewers yeast they wont put it there kung makakasama to sa dog.

All the information you have given are right but those are for humans, are you sure that it will be effective in case of dogs also and how we will feed them garlic.

Hi

Just my opinion, i've been giving garlic oil to my dogs for quite sometime. So far didn't see any disadvantage of using it in a regulated amount.

In cases of overdose, yes it migt have a bad effect on the kidney, liver etc.. Bad same with any other food or medicine, anything in excess is truly bad..

Even dog food has bad effect due to large amounts of salt and preservatives.

I agree with Mr. JohnDy, I used to have a Pug and i also give him this garlic oil capsules that almost looks like a squalene capsule (which i also give to Dogs). It helps to maintain the shininess and lessens shedding of my dogs coat.

According to ASPCA, excessive amount of garlic by dogs can cause harmful changes in red blood cells.

As long as the given amount of garlic to your dog stays at it's minimal it would be just fine, just like SteveWolly said excessive amount will be harmful to you dogs.

Does amount of garlic that should be given to dog differ according to the breed?
