  • Feeding Onions and Garlic
  • Applies To:All Lifestages
  • Although the recommendation to feed onion or garlic to pets is quite popular in the lay press, and allowable under current US AAFCO regulations, we do not recommend feeding garlic, leeks, onions and chives to dogs or cats because there is a potentially serious downside. Members of the Allium family (garlic, leeks, onions and chives) contain organosulfoxides, in particular, alk(en)ylcysteine sulfoxides. Cooking or spoilage of Allium plants does not reduce their potential toxicity.
