Despite this fact, garlic is falling victim to mass hysteria spread through the internet. Yes, there are sites devoted to warning about the "toxicity" of garlic, this hysteria has even prompted the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center to place a warning on garlic although there is little scientific data to back this claim other than the fact that thiosulphate is also found in garlic. Yet, there are also over 400,000 sites still proclaiming its benefits, many of them from reputable holistic veterinarians who have widely used garlic in their practice for many years! How can an herb suddenly turn so bad?!http://www.earthclinic.com/Pets/garlic_for_dogs.htmlhttp://www.solidgoldhealth.com/products/showproduct.php?id=84&code=302
I have been giving treats with garlic to my dog for years... and they haven't developed any issues. I carefully watch and ensure that they are healthy. My veterinarian (who isn't a holistic veterinarian) has recommended solid gold as well as the garlic bagel treats. A popular dog food that has garlic in the ingredients list is Innova, Beneful, pedigree, Nutro, and the list can go on... check your pet food and I am sure you may find garlic listed as an ingredient. If it was so harmful, why would they have it as an ingredient?
