I have found that the best way to keep fleas and ticks OFF your dogs all together is to put garlic in their food when you feed them. You can used minced or garlic powder in wet food or garlic juice on dry food. It only takes a little. Don't worry about the smell being on your dogs. You can't smell it but those blood thirsty creatures can and they stay away from them. This also works for intestinal worms. It makes the dogs intestines a nonfavorable environment and the eggs die off and pass in their stool, they never even get a chance to mature into adults. If your dog already has worms it works the same way. It makes it unfavorable, they die and pass in their stool. I've had vets tell me this is the best way to go because the creatures are starting to become immune to the chemicals and they don't work as well. I swear by this method and all three of my dogs have stayed flea, tick and worm free.

Everyone's an expert. My 50 lb. Dog lived a long, healthy, wonderful flea-free, tick-free, & worm- free life due to giving him a teaspoon of garlic once a month. You were probably overdoing the dose. Took him to the vet for check-ups. It works!

Garlic is a poison to cats and dogs and can cause renal failure, so no, garlic is not worth your pets lives.

Umm. NO. From the ASPCA website:
Onions and Garlic

All close members of the onion family (shallots, onions, garlic, scallions, etc.) contain compounds that can damage dogs’ red blood cells if ingested in sufficient quantities. A rule of thumb is “the stronger it is, the more toxic it is.” Garlic tends to be more toxic than onions, on an ounce-for-ounce basis. While it’s uncommon for dogs to eat enough raw onions and garlic to cause serious problems, exposure to concentrated forms of onion or garlic, such as dehydrated onions, onion soup mix or garlic powder, may put dogs at risk of toxicosis. The damage to the red blood cells caused by onions and garlic generally doesn’t become apparent until three to five days after a dog eats these vegetables. Affected dogs may seem weak or reluctant to move, or they may appear to tire easily after mild exercise. Their urine may be orange-tinged to dark red in color. These dogs should be examined by a veterinarian immediately. In severe cases, blood transfusions may be needed.
