When feeding the bee pollen/honey for allergies do the symptoms get worse before they get better? Just wondering because I've been giving it to my two less than a week so far; one really only has allergies though but this morning both dogs woke up with discharge in their eyes. We also pulled all of the weeds out of our backyard yesterday so maybe that's what they are reacting to. I see tons of bees pollinating those weeds so it seems like the pollen should help.

|Wild Wolf||I wrote a blog article on raw local honey, it really is a great natural remedy for dogs. With all things, doesn't work for every dog, but it absolutely works for a lot of dogs! I recommend it a lot, watched it help my aunt's rescue first hand.|

|Blanketback||OP, how are the allergies now? I'm also feeding raw bee pollen and so far so good. Last year at this time my puppy had an infected eye (needed medicated cream for that) and a terrible ear, as well as infected anal glands. This year the worst I've seen so far is very pink ears - but this is after some time outdoors, and I have allergies too, so at the same time my skin is just crawling with the itchies. Last year was very bad for allergies, according to my vet, so maybe Mother Nature is going easy on us this year - or maybe the bee pollen is a miracle cure.|

I'm giving my 7 mo old pup local bee pollen to help with her eye discharge. I've tried several food changes with no luck so now I'm trying the pollen. It's only been about 3 days but I haven't seen any results yet as far as her eye discharge. She seems less itchy though overall but I also started her on coconut oil at the same time.

|Jax08||It only took a few days for me to see results. I do not recommend taking her off her medicine at least until the honey is in her system. Put her on the honey for a week, then remove the medicine and see what happens.|

Then move on to the combination I posted below if there isn't results with the honey.
PM me for more info if you do try the SeaCure. If your dog is grain sensitive change this
Digestive Enzyme given at mealtime: Zygest 180 Capsules by Physiologics to this: Digestive Enzymes: Mercola Digestive Enzymes: http://shop.mercola.com/product/heal...mes,271,90.htm as there is a small amount of wheat/rice in the Zygest product.
Good Luck and keep us posted on what happens with the honey!

We tried local raw honey. At the same time we also changed diet and my dog has no allergy symptoms. I really don't know if the honey works, but we discovered some really fantastic tasting honey! It in itself is like dessert and for my dog it was a nice way to end the day with a tablespoon of raw honey.
I never liked honey until I tried the local raw. You should try some for both you and your dog, I've read it helps with blood purification.

Here's a thread on it
I really think the success is based on what the animal is allergic too. If it's grasses, it probably won't help. If it flowers, weeks, anything with pollen, then it probably will.

Thanks you guys!
Momto2 - I'll look at those things. Would you keep up with the honey also?

I tried local raw honey last year. My boy has Fall allergies, it's like clock work when the leaves start to come down. We have a farmer 10 min from my house with bee hives on the property (the honey is SO good).
I started to give my boy a tablespoon daily, by day 11-14 he no longer needed Benadryl. I was actually shocked it worked. It got us through the season..no insane itching resulting in secondary skin infections. I also feed raw.
I started to give it again for this Fall season my fingers are crossed it works again. So far so good. He gets so excited when he see's me get the honey bear and spoon out he starts to drool
I did consider the pollen granules but was advised it's very concentrated and could have the opposite reaction. So I never tried it.
Dr. Dodd's actually had this very topic on her blog a few weeks ago.
