You need to be careful giving Garlic to dogs. Too much of it can cause anemia in some animals. Also - Aloe Vera Gel can be toxic to dogs as well.

While minute amounts of these foods in some pets, especially dogs, may be safe, large ingestion's can be very toxic. If you suspect your dog or cat have onion poisoning or garlic poisoning, call your veterinarian or Pet Poison Helpline for treatment recommendations.

Remember what works for humans is not necessarily good for your pets.

Tea tree oil, has become a popular alternative treatment for many skin conditions affecting humans. Its popularity has resulted in some veterinary skin care products that contain small amounts of tea tree oil. In small concentrations (.1% to 1%), tea tree oil is tolerated and safe for cats and dogs.

Unfortunately, the oil's popularity has resulted in larger numbers of households with bottles of 100 percent tree tea oil, and accidental ingestion or improper dilutions of this highly concentrated oil can be harmful to pets.

PS. Apricots in any form is toxic to both dogs and cats.
