I read on a website (linked from google seach on worms) that pastuerized garlic juice will act as a wormer?

 

Has anyone heard of actually used this method?

 

Just curious?

 

Thanks

It would not be a good idea. I'm not sure it would work but my main concern is that garlic is toxic to dogs. A small quantity is one thing, a large dose of juice is quite another.

I don't use it at all! But I read it on a canine website and wondered the same thing about toxicity?

 

Wasn't sure either, so I asked.

 

Thanks!

You may get some replies saying that you should not feed garlic to your dog....it is true that it is toxic in large quantities....and that it doesn't actually get rid of worms (or deter fleas and ticks) but I have yet to see any clear scientific evidence one way or the other....I have fed my dogs garlic included in their liver cake treats for over ten years without any ill effects.....and they have not had fleas or ticks and I only worm them twice a year (bear in mind that I live in the UK so the problem caused by worms and the kinds of worms they can get varies).

 

I would suggest that if you want to try feeding garlic either make them some garlic liver cake...or just crush a fresh clove into their food a couple of times a week. The garlic juice may be pastueurised but as soon as it is opened it will start to deteriorate.

Garlic is a natural vermifuge but seriously, the amount you would have to use to have an effect is a lot more than a clove or two so toxicity is a real risk. Also it is not particularly effective. It doesn't usually kill off adult worms, just reduces the number of eggs they produce. To put things into perspective, wormers are usually of very low toxicity and even a major overdose is unlikely to have a harmful effect. Garlic is almost certainly more toxic plus doesn't work nearly so well. Why bother?

Garlic and onion can both be toxic.
