Although it’s cold, bug season is not over!
Bugs can be found everywhere, hiding in tall grass fields or surrounding your home. With so many toxic options out there that have the potential to do more harm than good, many are looking towards natural remedies to help protect their four-legged loved ones from unwanted guests making themselves at home in their coats.
Springtime customers report best results when they feed Bug Off Garlic to their dogs and horses year-round, and double or triple the dosage in the fall before winter. Insects and ticks are desperately looking for a last blood-meal to survive the winter.
We recommend feeding Bug Off Garlic daily, year-round, because it can be challenging to re-introduce Bug Off Garlic after a hiatus. Particularly with picky animals.
Another important part of of feeding Garlic year-round is because when the Garlic is already in your horse or dog’s system, there is more protection on those occasional warm days.
To further keep your mind at ease, upping the dose on these days is 100% okay, because the human-grade Bug Off Garlic is natural.
When you gradually increase the Garlic, your dogs and horses are used to the smell.
Bonus tip: Putting the garlic in a fridge or freezer can be helpful during this gradual increase, because keeping the garlic cold helps diminish the smell without changing the efficacy.

Year-round feeding is the best protocol because of the build up of Garlic in the system. Not to mention, the incredible health benefits!

While Bug Off Garlic shields against fleas, ticks, and flies, it also promotes friendly bacteria in the digestive tract. Another benefit of Bug Off Garlic is that it supports a healthy immune system.
Springtime has been selling Bug Off Garlic for Horses and Dogs for almost 25 years. While there is controversy circulating the toxicity of garlic for pets, from a single study in Japan where four dogs were force-fed extremely large amounts of raw garlic, Springtime has combined research-based chemistry with the desire for natural products.
Garlic preparations vary in chemistry, and the air-dried garlic we use contains very little of the oxidative component that may cause problems if used in excess, making Springtime’s Bug Off Garlic gentle and absolutely safe for everyday, year-round use.
