I have decided to stop giving to them internally, there seems to be real concern about hazards and its ability to produce severe immune system issues, so having a GSD girl with thyroid and a GSD boy with EPI, I do not want to give them something that may impact their immunity.
I still sprinkle it onto their coats and brush in - haven't seen a flea yet.
Also, it worked wonders on aphids in my garden - killed them all.

I had started this thread about putting it in food.
I decided, maybe not such a good idea. Yes the FDA has it approved for feeds but nobody is concerned about the longevity and overall health of livestock, just rapid weight gain for slaughter.

Read the articles on natural garlic that are on the Springtime site. Drying it does help reduce the negative effects. Because of the reported effect on red blood cells I do look closely at my annual panels (and have not seen negative effects).
Springtime has a scoop. Before that I did some research and used garlic granules from the store to come up with a dose but I don't have that off the top of my head.
The DE is great around the home. I occasionally feed some to the dog but not all the time. I just gave up with the dog because I keep a kiddie pool outside pretty much year round and he likes to jump in it and lay down.

Shortly before we brought Gus home, my daughter had a stray cat in the house for one night as our neighbours 5 cats had it surrounded on our back deck. We found the owner the next day and returned the cat to them.
My daughter began complaining about bug bites over the next two weeks. We brought Gus home and after about a week I noticed fleas on him. I immediately realized the stray cat had left some friends for us.
Not wanting to use chemicals, Carmen gave me DE. I didn't feed it to Gus but I did sprinkle it throughout my house. Covered the hardwood floors and all the carpeted bedrooms. Gave Gus a bath (only bath he has had to date) and within two weeks the fleas were gone. Haven't had an issue since.
I swear by the stuff, safe and non-toxic.

I wanted to buy Bug Off Garlic but I can't get it here is Australia and it was going to cost me $70 in shipping from the US!!!
So thought I'd use natural garlic instead, plus diatomaceous earth
