Garlic for Dogs’ Fleas (Vetinfo)
Many pet owners are now opting for natural and inexpensive remedies to get rid of the fleas on their dogs. This is because chemicals present in flea control products can cause diseases such as diabetes, cancer or renal failure and also lead to nervous system disorders and seizures.
Using garlic is a natural, inexpensive and safe way to get rid of the fleas biting your dog. When garlic is added to a dog’s diet, it enters the blood stream and the scent and taste of the garlic gets into the skin. Fleas hate the scent and taste of garlic and jump off the dog. An added advantage is that your dog won’t suffer from bad breath due to the ingestion of garlic. You can administer garlic to your dog in many ways. You can either add a quarter of a clove of garlic to the dog’s wet food, or add a garlic tablet to the food. Alternatively, dust your pet’s coat with small amounts of garlic powder or you rub garlic salt into your pet’s coat to rid your pet of fleas.
Raw garlic isn’t recommended for dogs and only cooked garlic incorporated in the food should be administered to the pet. Remember, large quantities of garlic are harmful to your pet’s health… Click here to read what Vetinfo says on the topic.
