"Garlic is a powerful antimicrobial and antibiotic and is effective in fighting various forms of internal or external bacterial, viral, or fungal infection. Garlic stimulates immune functions in the bloodstream by increasing the activities of killer cells. It is therefore beneficial for dogs with suppressed immune systems and dogs fighting cancer. Garlic has detoxifying effects. At least six compounds contained in garlic can enhance liver function by helping the liver to eliminate toxins from the body, thereby preventing toxic accumulation. It also aides in digestion."
Safe amounts suggested per DVM:
*Small dogs ¼ to ½ clove/day
*Medium dogs a ½ to 1 clove daily
*45-70# = 1 clove or ½ clove 2 x daily
*75-90# = 1 clove 2 x daily
*over 100# = 1 ½ cloves 2 x daily
You can purchase fresh cloves of garlic at larger grocery stores that are already de-skinned, so all you have to do is put them thru a garlic press. Or, you can purchase chopped/minced garlic in a jar that is packed in water. Follow directions on jar as to how many teaspoons = 1 clove of garlic.

Same, I use to give my dogs garlic years ago with no problem, then I read about its toxicity and stopped - I didn't have any problems but research says it is poisonous - go figure!
I found this website http://www.springtimeinc.com/product...og-Supplements (hopefully they ship to Australia)

Also, I have read giving an actual garlic clove each day may protect against fleas and ticks, however some say garlic is extremely toxic to dogs and can lead to extreme poisoning.
Does anyone give their dogs garlic?

A teammate used the scalibor collar. He said he was still picking 5 ticks a day off of his dog in his own yard.
I trained at his house and got ZERO ticks over the next few days. Springtime Garlic Granules. I am sold. We had just a few ticks all season and last year was bad.

Deltamethrin - Toxipedia
"Deltamethrin is considered the most powerful and therefore the most toxic of the pyrethroids, up to three orders of magnitude more so than some (#EXTOXNET). Human exposure to deltamethrin can occur through inhalation, ingestion, and the dermal routes of eye and skin contact. Each of these pathways can possibly lead to acute health effects. Both the World Health Organization and the United States Environmental Protection Agency list deltamethrin as moderately hazardous, with the WHO labeling the compound as a Type II Acute Hazard (PAN). Laboratory studies on mammals confirm this characteristic: acute doses of deltamethrin have caused writhing syndromes, convulsions, and salivation in rodents (#EXTOXNET).
The acute effects of deltamethrin exposure on humans include convulsions, ataxia, dermatitis, diarrhea, tremors, and vomiting. Allergic reactions to the compound through skin exposure are also common among agricultural workers."

|llombardo||I called and this is what they said...mouthing the collar can cause some drooling and vomiting but they have no record of it happening and those findings are based on dogs that are 30 pounds and less. If ingested completely they are more concerned with a blockage then the poisoning.|
