Bug Off Garlic Users

I know several of you started your dogs on Bug Off Garlic this year (my dogs have been on it for 6 years).

Any problems with ticks?

What about fleas?

Re: Bug Off Garlic Users

I thought maybe we could gather some unscientific data here on this board since many folks are seeing adverse reactions to the topical stuff.

My dogs have been on it for 6 years.

In 6 years I have found 1 tick total on a dog. We spend a lot of times in the woods and tall grass.

In 6 years I have had one flea infestation in my yard and my dogs did get fleas. Other than that I have only ever found one flea on all dogs total.

Ditto. Used it with advantix on Kayla until last fall. Use it exclusively without advantix/frontline/etc with both dogs since then and we have spent a lot of time in the local regional parks. So far so good.

Re: Bug Off Garlic Users

I started using it this spring. I have never found a flea on my dogs (knock on wood), so there's no change there. Ticks are bad here, before the Bug Off Garlic I'd pick one or two off the dogs every couple of weeks. Since I started using it...I have not found a single tick embedded on any of the dogs. I also got my parents using it on their dogs, and I don't think they've found any ticks either.

Not very scientific but I am happy without ticks!

I haven't used any of the topical flea/tick stuff for years, but when I did, the ticks didn't seem deterred by it at all. I didn't notice a difference between when I used it and when I didn't...I realized I was putting poison on the dogs and never looked back.

Re: Bug Off Garlic Users

I started my dogs on it a few months ago and everyone was doing great keeping fleas/ticks off them (Actually only had a problem with ticks before. Didn't have a flea problem when I started them.) until I let my grandmas dogs sleep with me ONE night and Chance picked up 3 or 4 hitch hikers from her dogs. I brushed them out and thought they were gone but when I spent another day at her house a week later he picked up 3 more. I haven't seen any since getting them off (But also haven't been back to her house) and pray there aren't any but just in case I did end up using Advantage for the first time (After the first few were found but apparently it didn't keep the second 3 off) and now I've just been using Springtime garlic and apple cider vinegar in his food and each night I comb lemon water through his coat which seems to be working. Even the vet couldn't find any today so hopefully the little dfhsdkfasd are gone. >_<

I wouldn't consider my situation an actual flea problem though, just a few who hopped on from being around 5 flea infested dogs. I don't think they were biting and if they tried, I'm sure he tasted awful.

Though I've had luck keeping ticks off! Lol! Before I started I found a few on Chance after we'd go into the woods/tall grass areas and since using the Bug Off I haven't found any.

Re: Bug Off Garlic Users

Yes, that's it. I've been using it for 6 years but I knew some people on this board started using it this year so I wondered what kind of results people were getting.
