Garlic has long been used for medicinal purposes for both humans and pets. The only time garlic shouldnt be given to a dog is when the dog is anemic or when its having an upcoming surgery

Garlic has many health benefits such as boosting the immune system, fighting bacterial/fungal/viral infections, enhancing liver function, flea tick repellent, lowers cholesterol and triglyercide levels, cancer prevention, all around good for the heart.

One clove of fresh garlic per 10 to 30 pounds of weight a day is recommended to boost the immune system and as a cancer preventative.

You can give garlic daily. But as with all herbs to make sure its effective its good to go 2 weeks on 1 week off. Thats what I do although some people do 3 weeks on 1 week off

Yes you can use the capsule form but like with most herbs its better to use the fresh or raw type. I personally had to use the pills because Gouda was really put off with the strong smell of the fresh cloves.
