2. Garlic Is Good for Your Dog's Health

For thousands of years, Chinese medicine has used garlic because of its health benefits. In the same way that this pungent vegetable is great for humans, it’s also good for your dog. Garlic is full of minerals including inulin, sulfur, potassium, amino acids, zinc, calcium, magnesium, and vitamins A and B. These nutrients help to enhance liver function, improve the digestive system, and lower blood cholesterol. Garlic will also boost your dog's immune system and can help prevent cancer. Garlic can act as a cardiovascular tonic for your dog. It prevents fat build-up and blood clots in the arteries, which is great for the vascular system, especially in older canines.
