its fine, and works!I used it on my last dog.. he had horrible flea and food allergies.you can also use brewer's yeast and / or thiamine supplements to the same effect. I 've found that animals quite like the taste of brewer's yeast (more than garlic)EDITas others have mentioned - MODERATION is the key.. the amount of garlic needed to harm a cat or dog would make them physically ill (vomit / diahrrea) first!As I mentioned - you can always use Brewer's Yeast which is safe and sold in pet-sized specially formulated capsules (Brewer's Yeast is also helpful for arthritis and joint inflamation relief). Some pet companies actually sell a combined garlic - brewer's yeast supplement.

garlic is toxic to cats.... please dont give it to them... i can't say about dogs... but it seems as though anything more than a very very very small amount would be.

It is fine as long as you don't use too much. A little is actually good for them. As with many foods that are considered "bad" for dogs and cats, it's all about the amount in which they are given.

A small amount is ok and will help repel insects. I give mine (weight 45-100 pounds) 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder each morning in their breakfast.I also just sprinkle a tiny bit in each of the cat's food.If you use wood chips in the dog house make sure you use cedar chips, this also repels fleas.
