Post Garlic for Dog

Hey all,
I know some people don't agree with giving garlic to dogs. In my opinion it is useful for Buddy. My issue is this; I cut up some garlic and put it in some virgin olive oil. I was surprising that Garlic goes bad when left in the oil?? I know it turned brown and had a layer of foggy looking stuff but not confident if thatís original or the garlic went bad. Have any suggestion???
The reason I ask is I purchased another bottle of oil and need to include the Garlic but donít wish for to destroy the oil.

Garlic is very beneficial for dogs who have issues with itchy skin, fleas or other parasites, etc. it also serves to boost the immune and liver functions. With that being said however, small dogs can only be given about 1/2 a clove of fresh garlic or 1/8 tsp of powdered garlic a few times a week as higher amounts have been shown to cause gastric issues and if you dog is going to be having surgery you should taper off due to the blood thinning properties of garlic. I had a dog with demodectic mange (parasite related) a few years ago and garlic helped us avoid every week dips in the Spring/Summer.

Oh, and to the original poster I would recommend either buying the kind in the store that is already in oil, using powder, or just preparing very small amounts (what will be used in a week) in advance. Also, garlic in oil should be refrigerated. Hope that helps!
