  • Garlic Dangerous For Dogs?

    Is garlic dangerous for dogs. I have always heard from different veterinarians that garlic is dangerous for dogs. Some people dissagree. Some manufacturers add it to their products to kill fleas and to kill parvo, and for candida, etc. Innova adds it to their dog food. I don't know how much they add to it. Some people believe that onions and garlic are of the same species. Onions are also believed to be toxic for dogs.

    Has anyone ever heard of a dog getting sick from ingesting garlic or onions?

      Well, I sure hope garlic isn't toxic to dogs or cats!

      Dogs generally love it, and it is such a great natural anti-microbial for humans (best if taken at the end of the meal so stomach acids don't destroy the allicin - active ingredient in garlic).

      I've heard and read that garlic and/or onions can also antidote homeopathic remedies, but I've never experienced a problem with either.

        We shouldn`t give large amounts because of the toxic thiosulphate in onions/garlic.

        Garlic is less of a danger than onions.

          Wim

          thanks so much for that great website. That is the most complete list I have seen to date.

          I recently read in a newsletter from my city hall that dogs become easily addicted to chocolate and will look for places where their owners hide it. So it is strongly adviced to never let dogs have even a taste of it.

          I agree that raw food isn't always good for dogs/cats. I have read on one yahoo raw food group where people are complaining about their pets getting loss of appettite, vomiting and diahrea and I'm sure that those who have lost a pet as a result of feeding raw food have removed themselves from those yahoo groups.

          I read somewhere where someone was refusing to accept claims that salmonella was the cause of death as a result of feeding their pets raw food.

          FROM THE ABOVE WEBLIST THAT WIM POSTED:

          Raw Eggs:

          Contain an enzyme called avidin, which decreases the absorption of biotin (a B vitamin). This can lead to skin and hair coat problems. Raw eggs may also contain Salmonella.

          Raw Fish:

          Can result in a thiamine (a B vitamin) deficiency leading to loss of appetite, seizures, and in severe cases, death. More common if raw fish is fed regularly.
