So this is a powder, not a pill?

Personally, I would prefer the powder...sprinkle it right on the food :thumbsup:

Yeah, found a tick on Aaron's shirt last night, pup transfer I'm sure. Ick!

The pups already get probiotic sprinkled in their food (I just switched to Dogzymes and started Xena on it) so it'd be easy enough to sprinkle another thing on too.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Got this on Thursday and started adding it to their meals. Too early to see real results, but Dash just let out a horrendous garlic fart!  :sick2:  Hope that's not a long-standing side effect or we'll have to buy gas masks!

We got our supply last week. DANG! That's a lotta garlic! LOL

So far, no toots....just massive garlic burps afterwards. I think Shawn fed them too much one meal, and the burps were REALLY bad. Singed my eyebrows while I was sleeping!!

Rubi actually refused dinner and breakfast after that. So told him....he's not allowed to give them garlic when he feeds breakfast. I think he put way too much in, even tho he swears it was just a sprinkle. He kills me with garlic when he cooks, so I can only imagine what a sprinkle was to the dogs. Fortunately, she's back to eating it now....just hope that when we're up to a full scoop that the burps and Rubi's tummy aren't going to continue to be a prob.

Well the scoop is only like 1/4 tsp and a pound looks to be about 4 cups in volume.  If I'm right, that's 192 scoops. So that's a good long while w/one dog! I'll probably only go through 1lb w/my two over the warm season!

LOL, I know the feeling! I think of cheesy Italian sayings practically every time I open it.  :mad:

Aaron fed them a full scoop each the other morning  :eek:  and then we got garlic stink ALL day long.

Julia, I give garlic year round...fleas can happen all year, dropping off bunnies or birds. 
I am so used to the garlic smell...been giving it to them, or all of mine for years!
