K9 Honey, Natural Health Supplement for Dogs
We’ve all heard the benefits of eating raw natural honey. It helps with weight management, it helps relieve pollen allergies, it’s a natural energy source, tons of antioxidants, helps with sleep, reduces recovery time in healing wounds and ulcers, is a natural cough syrup and MORE!
So why not give all these awesome benefits to your best friend? Your dog!
Your dog’s health should be just as important as your own. When you first get your new puppy (or older puppy), you make sure you get all their shots and get them the best food. But why not give them a treat that’s not only good for them but something that tastes delicious too!
K9 Honey is the first company to come out with its own line of honey just for your dog! K9 honey is “the first raw, unfiltered honey designed by nature for your dog’s overall wellness and vitality”. It is blended with bee pollen from nine different regions across the USA.
Although the list of how honey can benefit you and your dog is endless, here are a few explanations of how it can be used and why it should be used, from the makers of K9 Honey for dogs. https://k9honey.com/pages/your-dog-s-health
“While K9 Honey for Dogs is intended to be used as a treat or food topper, raw honey has long been studied for its many health benefits. The authors of Canine Nutrigenomics: The New Science of Feeding Your Dog for Optimum Health write, "Bee products - raw honey, pollen, propolis and royal jelly - are a functional superfood that contains a wide variety of health benefits for dogs."
You can use it alone as a treat, or drizzle some on top of your dog’s food. It will “promote your dog’s overall holistic health”. And because it’s just pure honey, you can share it with your dog! I know my dog is more inclined to eat things when he sees me eating them. Although it is very good for them, you won’t want to give them too much as it could give them a tummy ache. The recommended serving sizes are as follows:
Here is a short list of the many ways that raw honey has been used to assist pets around the world.
Veterinarians have recognized the value of raw honey for wound care in shortening treatment time and improving healing. Honey's acidity or pH is low enough to hinder or even prevent the growth of many types of bacteria. Also, an enzyme in honey produces hydrogen peroxide which is an antibacterial agent. It has been shown that honey reduces inflammation and soothes the pain of wounds and burns.
A number of studies have been performed on dogs and the research is so promising it’s being used in treating humans as well. Read these studies and articles from nutritionists, veterinarians, and scientists to learn how raw honey may decrease healing time.
“The use of honey in the management of wounds enhances healing and eliminates invading bacteria without the use of systemic antibiotics. Honey also decreases inflammatory edema. Thus the use of honey can be an effective and economical approach to managing large wounds.”
“Honey has a high glucose content, which bacteria use instead of amino acids, resulting in lactic acid production, in place of malodorous compounds from amino acids. This action deodorizes the wound—typically overnight. Honey also decreases edema, accelerates sloughing of necrotic tissues, promotes granulation and provides a protective protein layer over the wound.”
Some dog owners have found additional health benefits to feeding raw honey to their dogs, including improved mobility in arthritic dogs. In addition, dogs consuming raw honey appear to exhibit higher energy levels, a reduction in stress and improved digestion.
Reduced Allergy Symptoms
If your dog has been prone to chronic ear infections, itchy paws, and other allergy symptoms, your dog may benefit from a daily spoonful of raw honey. Not only will your pet enjoy the daily treat, he may experience relief from the allergy symptoms that plague him.
There are numerous studies done that have shown the superior efficacy of honey in the treatment of burn wounds. Honey has a pH that is low enough to hinder and even prevent the growth of many types of bacteria and contains an enzyme that is an effective and proven antibacterial agent. In fact, some studies indicate that raw honey is better at reducing inflammation, soothing burns, and healing wounds than many modern treatments.
If your dog is plagued with bouts of indigestion, diarrhea, or constipation, raw honey is certainly worth trying. Most dogs appear to respond well to a teaspoon of honey in their food each day, reducing (and in some cases, eliminating) the recurrence of digestive problems including diarrhea, constipation, flatulence and other digestive disorders.
Natural Energy Source
Just like people, dogs benefit from the slow metabolic release of sugars that raw honey provides. Honey sugars are mostly glucose and fructose, which are simple sugars, or monosaccharides. These sugars are more easily assimilated than the complex disaccharides and polysaccharides you'll find in processed sugar.
For humans, a teaspoon of honey when they have a terrible cough can provide instant relief. One of the greatest health benefits of honey for dogs is that it does the same thing for adult dogs who are unlucky enough to get a kennel cough. It may also help your dog find relief from the dry, unproductive cough caused by Bordetella.
Chronic Ear Infections
Raw honey has proven useful and nutritious for dogs.
