Teresa's StoryDon't know for sure if these eliminate fleas but my yorkie, P-Nut, just loves them! They tend to make his breath a little funky but its worth it to see his stubby little tag wag when he gets one of these!
beef bouillon, cubes
1 1/2 c
whole wheat flour
egg yolks, reserve whites
1Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or spray with nonstick spray.
2Dissolve bouillon cubes in hot water; set aside.
3In a large bowl, combine whole wheat flour, cornmeal, brewer's yeast, and garlic powder.Add egg yolks. Gradually pour in the bouillon water while stirring. Blend well to form a firm dough.
4On a floured surface, roll dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into small pieces or with a cookie cutter. Place on prepared sheet leaving space between cookies (they won't expand a lot so you can get a lot of cookies on one sheet.)
5Bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes or until hardened. Allow to cool. Store in air tight container or freeze them.

It's the garlic that makes them work against fleas - I feed Eddie & Zsa Zsa (my Pom mixes) garlic scrambled eggs on the weekends for the same reason.
Fleas won't stay on them - I'm not sure if they'll even bite since I bet the dogs smell different than ones that don't eat garlic. It's kinda like when you eat alot of Italian food - the garlic can sometimes come out through your pores. These sound like a good alternative when I don't plan to cook for the dogs. Thanks for the post.

How often do you give them to your dog? And is a greater quantity advisable for large dogs ( I have 2 Pit Bull/Shepherd mix)?
