Is Garlic Toxic to Pets?

Is Garlic Toxic to Pets?

A myth abound on the internet is that garlic is harmful and toxic to our pets.


Contrary to what you may believe, this actually isn’t true. Garlic, in safe amounts and the proper quantity, can actually be great for our pets!

 


The Garlic Myth Debunked

Yes, that’s right! In fact, the multivitamin I personally use every single day for my pets and recommend to other pet parents out there has garlic as one of the primary ingredients.


Garlic can be really great for your pet’s overall body system, including:


  • Circulation
  • Heart
  • Immune system
  • Fighting viruses and bacteria

Where the Myth Started

The myth that garlic is bad for pets came from a study that was done many years ago where dogs were given large quantities of garlic and changes were seen in their blood.


When I say large, I mean up to 70 or 80 cloves of garlic! However, none of the dogs in the study actually got sick.


So if there’s a healthy and organic product on the market that has garlic in it, don’t feel the need to shy away! It’s safe for your pets as long as you are purchasing from a trusted and reliable source.


Keep those pets healthy and happy everyone!
