We add garlic to our dog dinners that contain Tripe.
Garlic is a powerful, natural broad-spectrum antibiotic. Garlic is also an antioxidant, anti-allergen, antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-protozoan, anti-viral and anti-carcinogen. Garlic contains germanium, an anti-cancer agent and an anti-protozoan.
There is a lot of misinformation about garlic. Both garlic and onion contain thiosulphate, the substance responsible for causing ‘Heinz Factor’ anemia in dogs and cats but the amount of thiosulphate found in garlic is much lower than in onions, in fact the amount in garlic is barely traceable and when garlic is provided in proper daily dosage the thiosulphate is not sufficient to cause harm to dogs.
Garlic also acts as antagonist to fleas and ticks even when ingested and that is why we like it. Another added benefit is it disguises the smell of tripe. Please see the link below for more information:
