Default Lexi ate garlic today

So, the adventures with Lexi continue.. We came home tonight to a floor covered in garlic skins but no garlic. Somehow Lexi jumped high enough to grab a bag off the counter with two whole garlics in it. Her and Tessa both ate some but Lexi defiantly ate the most. Tessa knows better! And Lexi had terrible garlic breath. Anyways. They are both at the vet right now being treated and they induced vomiting. Hopefully we got it in time. I actually didn't even know garlic was that bad for dogs. When we called the vet they told us to get them there right away. So, lesson for the day, Lexi was not ready to be out of her crate. Back in it she goes. Ugh! Puppies!!
The girls!

Oh no...fingers & paws are crossed that they are both alright. I cook with garlic & I'm so paranoid about it that if we have something cooked with garlic, I won't let the girls even have a bite. I just don't want to take any chances. Keep us posted.

Garlic isn't bad for dogs in moderate amounts. It's actually a good immune booster, natural flea topical, and an antibiotic. 2 cloves isn't an insanely large amount. I believe 1/2-1 clove is normally given to a dog Boxer sized. I'm pretty sure she'll be fine.

So were back.. It wasn't two cloves it was two heads I guess it's called? Turns out it was actually Tessa that ate the most. Lex only ate about 3 cloves but Tessa ate 6 or 7 that they could find in her vomit. They are home and being normal. We just have to give them the charcoal twice tonight and watch for any symptoms in the next couple days.

Glad they are doing well and that you took them in to the vet. Garlic can be toxic and damage the liver if too much is ingested.

Hope they recover fine.
