Anaemia is easy to treat, ive had it, just needed to change my diet, you just need more iron and vitamins in your diet! which my horse gets from his cubes :)

thanks for the advice x
Hmm... teach him how to handle fly spray, or possibly give him anemia... o_O

I guess Ive been lucky then as I have fed all my horses Garlic for years n years and have never had a problem w anemia...ever
Granted if I gave them a cup of garlic daily sure maybe they may develop it, but at 1 tablespoon/day from May-oct (our bug season) I'm not concerned.

Ive read the articles, Ive talked w my vet, and He isn't concerned as the amount and type He feels is quite safe, and from what Ive read neither am I concerned.

So to the OP if you want to give your horse garlic ensure its the granulated garlic, and I give 1 tablespoon a day in their grain. I find it does make a difference

Horses are like chips...you can never just have one

He eats it and he is fine, anemia is a dietary condition from lack of iron not too much garlic! he has plenty of iron so the garlic shouldn't effect him that way.

This thread is oldish and came up again a few days ago... I don't know why
He has been eating it for a while now and NAF garlic granules are a recognised equine supplement and I keep to the dosage!
