I started my yorkie on bug off garlic for the summer by springtime. I’m giving him 1/4tablet a day. Is it safe to give this every day and should I give him more than 1/4 tablet. He weighs 7.3 lbs.Pandabear422Member
I’ve been giving this to my 7 dogs for years. I use the granules my beagle is 22 lbs and he gets a 1/4 scoop twice a day. I would think if you did 1/4 tablet twice a day that would be fine. You could always call them as they are very helpful.
I believe it says on the jar how much to use for good, better & best. It can take a few weeks for the garlic to permeate the tissue.
I went to my vet today and I kinda got the idea he didn’t want me to give my 7.3 lb yorkie bug off garlic. I only give him 1/4 chewable tablet a day. I was only going to do it during summer for fleas because I will not give him comfort is,frontline, etc. He’s afraid he might get anemia. What do u think?
I admit to being stupid about this but why would Bug Off Garlic cause anemia?
That said, are you new to BOG? It can take weeks for it to permeate the tissue. They also recommend year round use; I use it year round and have for years.CyndiMember
That quack vet that I went to a couple months ago or whenever, told me NEVER give your dog garlic, lol! I just said yeah ok, and blew her off. Bailey has since refused to eat her food with garlic in it (little sh*t), so I ordered that Bug Off Garlic and we’ll try that.theBCnutMember
Garlic in large amounts causes Heinz Body Anemia in a few different animals, dogs included. But they need to eat a really large amount of it for it to be a problem, much, much more than anybody sane would give their dog.
My vet was worried about the garlic because this anemia happens to smaller breeds more.
Thanks for explaining, Patty. I only know it’s toxic if they injest ALOT of garlic.NectarMomMember
I don’t use flea or tick products and I haven’t ever had a reason to but I do have a Chihuahua that is allergic to insect bites and I was wondered if this product would help her in any way or should I not bother? If she has a reaction I have to inject her with Benedryl but I worry when I am not home and if she has a reaction so I give her 1/2 a benedryl tablet every 12 hrs.
