Hi All,

How would I add BOG to my dogs diet - just sprinkle it over the kibble? Or any other smart tricks would be appreciated just in case they don't like it.

I sprinkle it over the raw food, dogs eat it readily...you may have to soak the kibble a bit so the granules stick to the kibble. It also comes in pill form, I wish I'd ordered pills instead of the powder.

I soak the kibble and add it routinely and he has not problem with it but he is not a picky eater. I make up "supplement packs" in little plastic cups with lids so that each day I have them ready to put on the food.....I make a whole weeks worth at once.

I just ordered it too and we're on day two of it. Wow - it really sinks! I think I'm going to stick to two scoops/day because any more than one scoop in a meal seems so overwhelming. I'd feel bad if that's all he tastes in his food.

I agree...I give one scoop and the dogs are eating it, but two would be overwhelming for sure. I sometimes skip it, when I give plain yogurt or eggs...the thought of garlic yogurt makes me gag. Not so bad when topping the raw meat with garlic.

Chama was the only dog who wouldn't eat it so she got the tablets. Otherwise I had to hide it in a big glob of canned food.

Rafi get two half scoops per day. He will eat anything.

Also, you're supposed to introduce it gradually and work up to the full dose.

I intend on ordering the tablets in the next week. The bugs out here are ridiculous and frontline clearly isn't working.

Does the Bug off Garlic really work? We will be giving Heartwork/flea/tick prevention starting June 1st, but we have a trailer and the misqitoes were really bad this last weekend and wouldn't leave poor Jake alone.
I haven't noticed that it made a difference with mosquitoes. I use it for ticks mainly and it definitely works to keep ticks off. I think it discourages fleas but if you have a lot of them the dog will still get bitten.

I find that NEEM protect spray works well to protect Rafi (and me, I spray it on myself too) from mosquitoes and biting flies. Ark Naturals Neem Protect Spray -- 8 fl oz - Vitacost

I don't use any pesticides on my dogs so it's all natural stuff.

What is really funny is that if I put stuff in his bowl, Beau just goes along and eats it no matter what.......

Now I have thrown food at him, like, you know a piece of bacon, hot dog (long story there, I don't buy them), cheese, and he looks at it like it is alien spawn and bats it around like a cat before he decides that maybe he will eat it. It took him 30 minutes to decide to eat a strawberry.

My other dogs were more like vacuum cleaners.........but........the garlic does not phase him in his food.
