I had a bad tooth pulled and was given antibiotics for the infection; didn't work so I bought a bottle of minced garlic in it's juice, and took a table spoon twice a day for two weeks. It worked. A year later my cat had a bad infection from a fight. Thought I'd try Garlic, and it also worked wonders after giving my cat a small teaspoon a day for a week. It does the body GOOD!!
