in small quantities garlic is all right, but I'd skip it just to be safe.

I never understood what "dog food" actually was - something is either food or it isn't. Meat, veggies and grains are food - little brown bits of chemicals and dehydrated bits of goodness knows what are not food. I switched my dog to FOOD a few months ago and the number of people who stop me to tell me his coat is shiny, that he smells nice, how are his teeth so white is UNBELIEVABLE.

It does require more effort on my part - but he is part of our family and we all make the effort to make this little bit of extra time.
