I have a question. I have a 50 lb Shepard mutt and a 25 lb Corgi. How much fresh garlic should I be giving them to keep them worm-free? Do I do it every day or a few days each month? What is the recommendation here?

[YEA] I routinely use 1(med) clove of garlic in a 2 litre stewpot that yeilds 72 oz of dog food. consisting of 2 cups brown rice, 2-3 small potatoes, 3 carrots, 1 tbsp rosemary, 1 stalk celery, 1tbsp basil, 1/4 can chick peas, 1 med zucchini, or broccoli and two apples, I sometimes include 1/8 cup cottage cheese, to this I add' a ratio of 1/3 pureed mixture of either beef or chicken liver, chicken gizards and hearts. In additional after cooked I sprinkle in 2 tbsp of a 2:1 ratio of calcium/phosphorus supplement, which also includes proteins, fats,vitamins, minerals and advanced micro -nutrients. Am I overdoing it by adding the calcium vitamin supplement?

[YEA] I have been giving my dog one 1500 mg garlic oil capsule a day for over a month in hopes of curing her smelly/itchy ear problem. I have given her garlic in the past, so I already knew this would not hurt her. It hasn't seemed to help so far, but I can attest to the fact that GARLIC DOES NOT HURT DOGS.Replied by Anon

Yes I just started giving garlic to my dogs because we have such a bad flea problem. We hav 5 dogs 4 German Sheperds and a coon hound and after trying all the money coasting things that dont work I have to try it. I was just wondering how long it should take to work? I am putting 1/2 tsp in food mornig and night of minced garlic and they really seem to like it. I even went as far as to have my yard sprayed and still the fleas are here just as bad, so Im hoping this will work for me. I plan on taking them off of it when flea season is over and then I will start them back right before it begins. I also wonder if anyone can tell me what to do for in my house in the carpet.
