Garlic is OK in moderation. While nothing has been conclusively proven one way or another on the use of garlic as a home remedy for dogs, cautious and limited use seems the best approach.

Teresa yoghurt is fine if given a few times a week it must be plain natural yoghurt with no sugers added. To much will give the dog diarrhea.

I agree 100 per cent with garlic being fine.. I have fed mine raw garlic since tiny pups you would have to feed a bucket load to cause problems you have to be careful with all natural remedys I also use the "Billy no Mates" and fingers crossed have had no unwelcome visits..I also use pure essential oils to keep my dogs free of ticks and fleas yet again you have to be careful but I am qualified to use oils and they smell nice..lol...mine love yoghurt and have every morning natural bio with their breakfast...neither have ever had diarrhea...and are both thriving on a raw diet...I try not to use chemicals in any way shape or form I make everything myself from their treats to their shampoos....

LOL Finn, you should see the shoulder of beef I cut up. It looks nicer than the steak we get in the butchers

I have fed   RAW   since  1993,  we get locally sourced   chick/tripe/beef/lamb and local game and rabbitts  ,we mince our own and buy chicken backs/carcass  and wings from a local chick farmer,  I have reared 4 litters  on this  and  can thoroughly reccomend it, its   natural,easy and cheap, leading to better health/weight and skin and coat condition

Love what I've been reading and pretty much could say what others have said. I joined so I can get some advice on amounts to feed as my Irish boy has been gaining weight for the first time with raw meat and I'm sorry to admit ( please don't crucify me) he's kibble! Thank you Dianne and Irish.

Welcome to any new arrivals to the group. 

Dianne what weight is your dog? you normally feed 2-3% of the dogs body weight per day.
