Garlic (Allium sativum) is a relative of onions and is an ancient food and medicinal plant.
Some naturopathic vets use garlic oil to treat ear infections and ear mites. A common recipe involves thin slices of garlic combined with olive oil, and left to steep for about 2 weeks. After straining the garlic from the liquid, several drops of the solution are then placed in the dog's ear, and the ear is then gently massaged.
