I have been feeding Spots (our horse) dehydrated garlic since 2002 and her overall heath and appearance has improved. Her hair is shiny and silky and her skin has improved tremendously from bug bites. I have been able to cut down the amount of time she wears her fly mask. The mosquitoes don’t like the smell of garlic so they don’t bother her as much.
Here is a new recipe that I have been feeding Buster and Jenny. They love the taste and it is healthy for them. It comes from Dr. Richard Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats, but I have altered it slightly. I omitted the bone meal which is hard to find. Dr. Pitcairn is one of the preeminent authorities on health care for cats and dogs. He includes garlic as an acceptable ingredient in his home made recipes.
2 ½ cups nutritional or brewer’s yeast
1 ¼ cup lecithin granules
1/3 cup kelp powder
1500 milligrams ground vitamin C (you can also empty out Vitamin C capsules)
Feeding Tasty Powder to your pets: Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl and mix well.
Transfer into jar and store in the refrigerator.
Add mixture to your cat and dogs food everyday.
Tasty Powder for cats and small dogs, 8 – 20 lbs; 1 to 2 teaspoons per day
Tasty Powder for medium dogs, 20- 60 lbs; 2 to 3 teaspoons per day
Tasty Powder for large dogs, 60 – 90 lbs 1 tablespoon per day
Tasty Powder for extra large dogs, 90 – up; 2 tablespoons per day
My cat and dog LOVE this powder. If you have a finicky eater just try this powder and see how much your critter will love it. (If this doesn't work… try cooking them some grass fed London Broil in the crock pot!)
I also feed Jenny about 10 blueberries a day. Which are high in antioxidants and she loves them!
