We got a great question from a client this morning, and I just had to write about it! My very well educated client knew that garlic (as well as onions of all sorts) can be toxic to dogs and cats, but she was seeing it listed in her pets treats! I too have seen it listed as an ingredient, and was concerned but never investigated it further until today. In speaking with a nutritionist at Hills, we found that some pets can be more sensitive to these substances. Cats in general are more sensitive than dogs. The best recommendation is to avoid garlic, onions, etc completely to avoid any problems with your pet!

Love, love Lexington Animal clinic! All staff members are accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable. They will go out of their way to make sure your fur babies are well looked after and you know step by step care for any treatments. You need a quick nail trim, they try to squeeze you in, forget to call in a refill in time, they'll do their best to get it there a few days earlier.
