[RC] Garlic - Charles

Is there an advantage of one brand over another?  Can I use the Garlic Powder I buy at Costco?  (Haven't compared prices yet, but I have some extra floating around).

My gelding is a tick magnet, and Lyme Disease is a real problem around here.  I asked my vet about feeding powdered garlic, and he said to give it a try, that it seems to work for some horses and not others.
Well, it worked for my guy.  I used to find multiple ticks on the tip of his tailbone and golf-balls sized lumps (dripping blood and pus) near the groin.  Now I might find one tick on him per year!
Started out feeding garlic from Springtime but later switched to ABC's garlic, and I give him one tablespoon at each of his two daily meals.  He would sift it out of his sweetfeed, but adding wetted beetpulp took care of that problem.
