Customer Question
I thought dogs liked...

I thought dogs liked the flavor of garlic and I put it in liver and cornmeal treats What can I give her to counteract reaction fo garlic

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the dog's name and age?

She is almost 9 and her name is***** is a black lab, commonly called an American Field Lab

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Olive?

She has thrown up the last couple of days. I used to show Golden Retrievers and we gave the liver, cornmeal, garlic treat to the dog in the show ring. I have given Olive two or three small bites when I give her pills. She was taking Tremidol for pain and another common one for anti inflammatory. for her knees. I started giving her alfalfa and turmeric instead.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did Olive eat anything unusual?

Nothing that I know of. She threw up grass and it was quite black.

I have made several batches of this treat. She didn't seem to be bothered by the treats. She may have thrown up because of something she ate in the back yard.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Olive weighs about 78 pounds.

I called my 24 hour vet and I will get Olive's kidney's checked soon. She is still eating and doing fine. I understand that garlic is part of the onion family, and it causes damage to red blood cells. NO MORE GARLIC! I THREW OUT THE LIVER COOKIES.

Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Olive swallowed some garlic recently. I can perform some calculations to determine if there is a likelihood that any damage will occur to the red blood cells. Do you happen to know about how much garlic she swallowed in the cornmeal treats?
