Can dogs eat garlic

Posted on | April 18, 2012 | 3 Comments

You may remember from my other post that dogs cannot eat garlic. Although I have said that in the past, in more recent research some dog owners claim that dogs can eat garlic. Although some say that garlic in small doses can be fine, personally I stay away from it. If you were told that rat poison in small doses might be fine for you, would you take it?

Before you throw the argument that a human wouldn’t eat rat poison anyways as a treat, ask yourself this: “Is garlic dog food?” You can say that I wouldn’t eat the rat poison because it isn’t human food, but in that case dogs shouldn’t be eating garlic since it isn’t dog food.

Alright so let’s clear things up:

Can dogs eat garlic?

               –Yes (in very small doses)

Should dogs eat garlic?

               –Probably not.

    Today, we must use organic rat poison because it does not affect other animals. Chemical rat poisons are very dangerous to the environment. *:::; Warmest wishes diseases webpage

    Warfarin is the main component in rat poison, which is also a blood thinner used in humans in small doeses to treat heart patients and many other ailements. It is a blood thinner that is a major part of life saving treatments when administered properly.

    Interesting that dogs should not eat garlic generally. Years ago my Mum had a Standard Short-haired Dachshund who has an allergy to fleas & she was told to put a little bit of powdered garlic on his food to help the problem.
    He lived to 14years in pretty good health.
    So that’s all I can say from experience.

    To be safe I think I would rather not give garlic espec. raw/cooked.
