Despite many sites advising against garlic for dogs, this is incorrect information. This label is from a high quality commercial dog food and contains garlic. Here's some help to demystify what you may have learned. Garlic is actually anti-microbial and even repels fleas and ticks. It can help reduce inflammation, detoxify, and has anti-cancer properties. Given to healthy adult dogs it is therapeutic in appropriate amounts. In order for garlic to be toxic to dogs, an exuberant amount would need to be consumed like 8 cloves for a 10 pound dog! Of course, do not feed your dog this amount.
How to dose: give 1/2 a clove of garlic per day for every 10 pounds of body weight not to exceed 3 cloves in one day. Give organic garlic in raw state after letting sit out for 10 minutes once you have cut it or used a garlic press. This allows allicin to form which carries anti-inflammatory, immune support, and anti-microbial properties.
