Have you ever heard your dog cough in the winter? When we hear that, we whip out a teaspoon of local honey to sooth what could be a sore throat. The AKC says that honey in small amounts won't harm dogs. We've found that our dogs seem to be soothed almost immediately. Importantly,Lots of products *say* they are honey but they are loaded with fake ingredients, so make sure you get honey from a local honey vendor or Organic honey. We use local honey from Mill Creek Apiary.
