Garlic? (moved from Gen Info to Basic Care)

What kind and how much for each dog for fleas and ticks? I would prefer powder, but I'm not sure if that would work as well as fresh garlic.

I've used the Fresh Factor Bug Off Garlic tablets for some of my dogs and it works well. They also have a powder that you can mix in with the food. Just be sure to start off slow and watch for any signs of upset stomach because some dogs can't tolerate it.

I had great luck with garlic powder from Springtime. It works great but my dog hates, hates the taste. Even in pills he wont eat it

The Springtime Inc. Bug Off Garlic powder works great to repel ticks. It takes about 3 weeks to build up in the system though. In the 6 years I've been using it, Rafi has only had 1 tick.

Here is the dosage table I use for fresh garlic:
*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

I had a long thread called my no chem garlic preventive journey.

It worked very well for us. My ultimate issue was after doing everything to diagnose loose stools I realized it was the garlic....but it worked amazingly well and I am going to try to taper it in again next spring.
