I haven't tried it, nor would I try it.
I use only local honey for our dogs. Shooter is an allergy dog, & his dermatologist was quite clear that I should only use raw, local honey. The way he explained it was that the pollen in the honey is in such small parts that it is ingested by the dog without a reaction. As time goes by, it, supposedly, helps build up a tolerance to the pollen. He said that you use only local honey, so that you are exposing him to only pollens that are in his enviroment. He also said that using other honey could expose him to pollens from other places, & that in itself might cause his skin issues to get worse.
I'm honestly not sure how much of this is true, & how much is just speculation, but I figure that he went to school to specialize in dermatology, & he has no stake in what honey I buy, so I go with his suggestions.
I also don't really care for the fact that it claims to "treat" many different conditions, yet I can find no legitimate medical studies to back up these claims.
Call me cynical, but it just looks like overpriced honey to me.
