was supposed to help with fleas but I don't think it really did.
however he loved them so I continued to give them to him....

Beware of garlic products, in sufficient quantities they can cause red blood cells to rupture in dogs.....

Fasb's previous owner - my sister-in-law - gave him brewers yeast tablets in addition to Frontline. Fasb also had a seemingly unrelated seasonal allergy, where his back paws itched and he chewed them obsessively. He wouldn't chew the fur off the paw, but he would chew enough that his saliva stained the fur a copper brown color. Severity of the allergy varied from summer to summer and went away by September. Vet thought Fasb was picking up something on his paws from the grass in the area, but nothing the vet recommended helped much.

When we got Fasb, we didn't see any harm in continuing with the brewers yeast, but, when summer rolled around and Fasb started to chew his paws again, we discontinued the tablets. I don't remember if someone said something that made us suspect the brewers yeast, or if it was just a hunch, but it worked. The paw itch cleared up almost immediately and we haven't had a problem with summer itch since. So I'm assuming the brewers yeast was the culprit.
