Lies about Garlic-it’s a Good Guy

by Dr. Deva Khalsa on May 24, 2011

Garlic is not toxic to your dogs and cats. In fact, with the terrible tick problems in the Northeast, we need garlic more than ever.   In order for garlic to be toxic to your dog, the average German Shepard or Golden Retriever would have to eat 75 raw cloves of garlic in each meal.  What dog would ever eat that much garlic in one meal?    When facts come out it’s really important to analyze them thoroughly.   In the research done on nitrates ( the stuff that preserves lunch meat)  causing cancer in rats the subjects (rats) were fed more nitrates than a human could ever eat.  Humans would have to eat 100 lbs of lunch meats for breakfast lunch and dinner equalling 300 lbs of lunch meats a day for 2 years to even approach the levels of nitrates that the rats were fed.

By the way, after that study, how many people still eat lunch meats?

We’ve become afraid of adding garlic to a dogs food and garlic builds the immune system, detoxifies and has antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties. Raw garlic every day also helps to repel ticks and fleas.  More about this in the next blog entry.  Time to welcome garlic back into our pets’ diets!
