Treat dogs for with fleas and ticks using fresh garlic.
So, again, just to be clear: use fresh, raw, organic garlic whenever you’re supplementing or feeding garlic for dogs. Nothing from a jar!
She must have gotten flea infested for we have 3 dogs next door, but the garlic didn't kill the fleas. I sent someone to buy me advantage or front-line, but I'm on short term disability and have been for awhile and can't afford. So, I got the cheaper $15 bio something for 3 mos.? Now I'm goign to try and add those 3 fresh garlic cloves minced up in a can of tuna and see what happens? Maybe with the 3 of them it will rid. I know for sue the garlic kills the ugly looking tape worms, but the fleas have to go too 'cause she just keeps licking her butt (yuck) and tail when they aren't dead and I'm sure they are still there. I washed her 3x's before trying this garlic in Adams flea N tic shampoo with NO success.......... onward I march to try the fresh garlic. thanks for home remedies!! :)
According to the Whole Dog Journal, "Garlic improves cholesterol balance, inhibits harmful platelet congregation and acts as an antioxidant. There is much debate about which type of garlic is best and every preparation (fresh, dried, cooked, raw or extract) has it's proponents. Although side effects are rare, garlic does thin the blood and should not be used by dogs with bleeding disorders. Otherwise, it is usually safe to take in "courses" of five days on and two days off for four weeks, then discontinued for one week before resuming, with occasional breaks of a month or more".

GARLIC FOR HUMAN AND DOG HEALTH
Numerous medical studies show how garlic juice reduces cholesterol and helps the heart. Worldwide people take garlic pills, eat garlic cloves and spray garlic juice on food for good health.
For dogs it does even more: 1. Keeps dogs from having worms and gets rid of worms that are there. 2. Keeps fleas and ticks off dogs by getting into the dog's system and creating a garlic odor that fleas and ticks detect and avoid the dog altogether. (Don't worry, your dog won't smell like garlic. Humans can't detect the garlic odor on the dog but the insects sure will!) 3. Reduces a dog's cholesterol level for good heart function.
Garlic Juice is easiest way to give garlic to your dog, here's how most kennels and dog owners do it: Spray or pour garlic into the dog's food, mix well into the food.
Here's the recommended daily dosage:
5-20 lb. dogs - 4 sprays or 1/4 ounce in food daily. 21-50 lb. dogs - 6 sprays into food and mix well. 51 lbs. and over dogs 8 sprays into food and mix well.
If, for some rare reason your dog will not eat food with the garlic juice in it, mix the garlic juice with soybean oil (available in the cooking oil section at your local supermarket) and mix into food - this also helps make a very nice coat on the dog.
Say goodbye to poisonous flea collars! Mother Nature has provided a safe and all-natural alternative - farm fresh garlic juice! By It is better to talk to your vet first. Over the years, there has been new information about our pets' diet.My father-in-law fed his two dogs fresh garlic every day. The dogs smelled so bad, their breath was unbearable. No one wanted these dogs near them because of their awful odor. They both died of a liver problem less than a year apart which now makes me wonder if by giving them garlic caused their health problem.
