You may want to try organic dog food. Nature's domain is good, either the red or green bag. It's cheaper at Costco. Lots of dogs with hot spots and itching from allergies is from all of the chemicals and GMO's in traditional dog food.
You mix it in their food. I can't say how much. Too much garlic can cause the dog to get sick as it is poisonous to dogs. However, it would take an extreme amount of garlic to make them sick.
There may be others on here that still use garlic for fleas. They might be able to tell you how much per pound or something like that. I use K9 Advantage.
Based upon the criteria here's my small list. Of course more dogs could be included in the list. My choice is the Perro De Presa Canario. That's my preference. But I say that everyone should make their on choices based upon their research. Always research the breed and the breeder. When choosing a presa I narrowed my search down to the Presa, Cane Corso, Boerboel, and Dogo Argentino. I decided against the Boerboel because of the size being bigger than I wanted and wasn't going to be as agile or fast as a
I replied earlier on this topic from my phone. However, for some odd reason it didn't go through/ I will reply more later with my opinions. For now my number one suggestion is the presa canario. I admit I;m partial as this is the my breed preference. I would also say the Caucasian. As these or my top two favorite dogs. But Caucasian may be too big and shed too much based upon your criteria.
What is the best way to apply garlic to a dog?
The home remedy for fleas is garlic. But I don't think it will help with ticks.
I've had nothing but good success with k9 advantage. I works or fleas, ticks, mosquito, and biting flies. It last for 30 days. It's a topical like frontline. It's waterproof.
I actually have 3 dogs and 2 cats, living in rural Kansas in a wooded area we have crazy fleas! We are a little tight in our budget right now and to treat all of them with the comfortis pill would be over $100 which currently between our 3 kids, 5 animals, mortgage, and having to cover a $9500 plumbing bill, we can't afford it. I have spent money on the flea shampoos (which work to kill the fleas on the dog but aren't preventative regardless of what the label says) and topicals like frontline which seem
That sounds like some great combinations! I do the eggs too. Sometimes I even throw in the eggshell. I've heard that is good for them but I have my doubts that they can digest it.
Understood. So we use canned spinach, mixed veggies, sweet yams, and colored greens in the food. Switch them daily.
We also use one egg and couple dallops of yogurt. Mash it all together into a slurry and then drop in some meat.
I made a video over 10 years ago that showed how we did it then. Will find it and post it then.
I agree Gary. This is why I said turn the veggies into a pulp in order for the dog to benefit from the nutrients. In order for a dog to digest veggies they first need to be crushed. This would be done by the jaw teeth. Dogs don't have them. Therefore, when I give my dog a raw carrot it comes out in their stool just like it went in. It is still whole or however I sliced it. This is because they don't have the teeth to break it down. We have to help them by putting it through the food processor. There are
