Wendy, garlic is good to use to prevent fleas and ticks from biting dogs. However, I was told to never use raw garlic and only cooked garlic. I forgot why.

Also, raisins and grapes are bad for dogs as they will cause the liver and kidneys to fail.

I was told by the vet that raw garlic doesn't break down in the blood like it is supposed to so I have always steered away from it cause I didn't want 2 hurt my babies in any way.

I think these would be ok.Not sure if my vet would approve of them or not.My puppy needs to shed a few pounds.No people food for her and that is including healthy stuff like carrots.She used to have V-8 on her dog food.I finally got her weaned of that but it took me a good week to eat just her food plain.Yes she is spoiled but very loved.

Mish, my vet approves of homemade dog food. He thinks I am crazy to make my own dog food rather than buy it premade. lol But, Poncho is on a bladder stone diet, which is pretty nasty. Poncho isn't usually picky, but he will NOT eat the prescription diet food from the Vet's office. So, I had the Vet give me a recipe and I make my own. Many Vet's have a paper will all kinds of homemade diets for canines and felines. The treats are allowed, on occaision since they have allowable foods and no meats.

Many pet owners are making homemade dog food because of all the deaths from the store bought dog food. My Jet-Bo died from renal failure. He live another 15 months after he was diagnosed with renal failure as we put him on a special diet and meds. It wasn't until after he died that we discovered that many of the dog foods on the market were causing renal failure! By then, Jet-Bo was dead and hadn't been on the store bought dog food in over a year so I don't know if they caused it or not.

Do you think it's cheaper to make your own dog food?

I've been making my own dog food for my elderly dog for 2 1/2 years now. I have found that it is way cheaper than the store bought, especially since what I am making is a prescription diet, which can only be purchased through a Vet. I make a huge batch that makes about 3 weeks worth of dog food at any given time. Then, I freeze it in single serving baggies. I roll mine into little tube-like shapes so that can lay on top of each other in rows. I take out one from the freezer and pop in the microwave for about a minute and a half. Although it is cheaper, it is also time consuming. I would not be going through this much trouble in my busy life if it weren't for the fact that my baby needs it to live a happy, healthy life as the prescription stuff is nasty.
