dogs and honey
by Andrea Hubert
What are the benefits of honey/pollen/propolis/RJ for your dog? If baked in a treat, what is the nutrional value? And how much of each can be given per pound of weight of your dog?
The benefits of these products for your dog would be very similar to those experienced by humans. Most of the studies done on these products have been done on animals at this point and the results are quite exceptional.
The nutritional value of each product varies. Are you referring to calories?
I don't recommend honey for dogs. We recommend giving dogs 1/2 teaspoon of bee pollen per 50 pounds of bodyweight as a conservative dose. Royal jelly powder can be given at 1/8 teaspoon per 50 pounds and propolis chunks can be given at a rate of 1 chunk per 50 pounds. Propolis powder would be 1/8 teaspoon per 50 pounds.
