I found you site when I was looking for royal jelly. I am looking for a natural alternative to antibiotics. My 7 year old schnauzer has schnauzer bumps or comdeo syndrome. She has always had a few bumps but they raise up and go away on their own. She has a really bad break out a couple of weeks ago, I took her to the vet and they did skin scrapings and blood tests to see what they were dealing with. She had developped a staph and step infection to go along with the comdeo syndrome. They gave me antibiotics and a shampoo to use. The bumps went away but came right back after the antibiotics were gone. I don't want to have to give her antibiotics everytime she has a breakout. I saw in a site that royal jelly could be used as antibactiral I thought that it might help her. Can you give me any information about what I should give and what dose. Any information you can give me would be appreciated.
Royal jelly has been shown in studies to have immune enhancing/modulating properties as well as skin healing properties. It has even been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties which would help your dog as well as there is sure to be some inflammation on the skin. So yes, royal jelly may help your pet. I would suggest trying a royal jelly powder with her to start. As always, start with a very small amount to determine tolerance and work up from there.
Perhaps even more powerful than royal jelly as an anti-bacterial is bee propolis. There have been extensive studies done on the anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties of this amazing substance. I use it daily during the winter months to ward off colds and flu. I highly recommend it. If you do decide to try it with your dog, get the propolis water based tincture and inject it directly into her mouth or onto her food.
