    im trying the garlic thing this year. i take one ear off a clove of garlic per dog and ground it up with hot water and pour it over there food one clove to one cup of HOT water. i do this once a day for a week ever 30-40 days. the other benefit to feeding garlic is the blood of a garlic eater is healthy blood and fights off bacteria and viruses better.
