Ani Phyo has a vegan 95 pound dog Kanga, and she gives her about 2 cups of a raw pate twice a day:

1 clove garlic
1 tablespoon sea salt
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup almonds, cashews, Brazil nuts, pecans, or walnuts
2 cups green and vegetables (kale, spinach, squash, carrots)
1 tablespoon fresh herbs (basil, oregano, cilantro, dill)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Process garlic and salt into small pieces. Add sunflower seeds and nuts and process into a powder. Add remaining ingredients and mix well, and drizzle with olive oil before serving. (From "Ani’s Raw Food Kitchen")

There is a controversy regarding feeding onion and garlic to pets. The key to safe use of garlic on dogs is the dosage level and frequency of use.

Dr. Martin Goldstein (author of The Nature of Animal Healing) recommends adding garlic to home-made pet food and he himself feeds garlic to his own cats and dogs on a regular basis.

Dr. Pitcairn (author of The Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats) recommends the following amount of fresh garlic for dogs, according to their size:
  • 10 to 15 pounds - half a clove
  • 20 to 40 pounds - 1 clove
  • 45 to 70 pounds - 2 cloves
  • 75 to 90 pounds - 2 and a half cloves
  • 100 pounds and over - 3 cloves
