It's unlikely that you would need to do anything at all. It would take an extract of garlic equivalent to 5 grams (about a measuring teaspoon) per kilogram (2.2 lbs) of body weight daily for 7 days for an anemia to develop 9-11 days after dosing. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

Correct! It's not easy to intoxicate a dog with garlic! Please continue our conversation if you wish.
