"Little bits of garlic are okay to feed your dog. Garlic is an excellent tick, mosquito, and flea preventative.
The reason why most vets are opposed to raw diets is because they do not get any training in dog nutrition when they go to vet school, and if they do get training, it is sponsored by the kibble companies. Dogs have been eating kibble only in the last 50 years or so, so I wonder what they ate before kibble was invented.
I agree that kibble and raw should NOT be fed at the same meal, although it is okay to feed them as separate meals. It takes longer for kibble to digest and all of the digestive enzymes and acids focus more on the kibble, essentially leaving the raw food to sit in the gut and rot.
Feeding cooked bones is a no-no, although if the bones are pressure cooked, that is fine because the pressure cooker will soften the bones up a lot. Just make sure you go through the bones first and make sure there aren't any sharp bones that haven't softened.
