Raw Honey has many health benefits for dogs; Vitamins C, A, and Beta Carotene to name a few. Honey also has antibacterial/antimicrobial properties.
If your dog suffers external allergies, adding small doses of local raw honey as a supplement could help prevent or reduce full-blown attacks when the season hits.
Local is the key. My source is Rick Cousins, author of the book The Urban Beekeeper, located on Sharon Lane in Charlotte.
As a Canine Nutritionist and manufacturer of local raw dog food, my objective has always been to keep carbohydrates to a minimum. In the case of allergies, the benefits of raw honey outweigh the negative results of a few carbohydrates added to a natural low carbohydrate diet.
