I take my dogs to a Holistic vet. He wrote the book Natural Health Bible for Cats and Dogs and has a program on sirius radio. He told me to give my dogs garlic instead of Frontline. So I am curious about the garlic.

We have a walnut tree in our yard and the walnuts get EVERYWHERE, especially b/c of the squirrels. Our new puppy just started chewing on the old nuts from last year and she started puking this morning. Could it be possible that walnuts are bad?! We are going to the vet this morning anyway, so we'll ask then. I just wanted to think on this idea some more.

I'm sure garlic is ok, but yes probably in large quantities not. Rachel Ray used to cook for her dog and garlic was in quite a bit of the food she made. She used onion juice (grated onion) as well b/c the dog didn't like it, but it didn't seem to be harming her. My best advice is to just ASK your VET! Let's not spread a bad food list if it is incorrect!

Very true about chocolate. It can definitely be toxic if the dog eats enough. I wrote an article with a little more info about Dogs and Chocolate. I hope it's ok to post that here.

Once the garlic is cooked it's okay. It's the raw garlic that you want to avoid.
