Honey: Not Just A Natural Sweetener For Your Bulldog

Honey Superfood For Bulldogs

Honey is a great natural sweetener with some superfood properties.¬† It’s an excellent source of a type of antixoidants called flavonoids [1] [2].

Please note: honey is safe for dogs and also recommended for dogs … in¬†reasonable amounts.¬† Like most things in life, too much of a good thing can turn bad.¬† ūüôā¬† So you don’t want to give too much honey to your Bulldog.¬†

But in terms of sweeteners, this is the best sweetener because the sugars are more easily digested than processed sugars – and because of the health benefits that honey has.

Here are the Top 6 reasons why we use honey in our superfood biscuits:

  1. Digestion [3] [4]
  2. Allergies [5]
  3. Immune System / Anti-bacterial [6] [7]
  4. Energy
  5. Cardiovascular system [8] [9]
  6. Kennel Cough [10] [11] [12]

#1: Digestion

Honey has antibacterial properties which can help with gastroinstestinal problems.  [3] [4]

#2: Allergies

If your Bulldog¬†suffers from allergies, honey may¬†help.¬† There is a small amount of pollen that can desensitize your Bulldog’s body so they won’t over-react to pollen when their exposed to it in large doses in the spring and summer.¬†[5]

#3: Immune System / Anti-Bacterial

Honey is widely accepted to provide immune system benefits due to it’s anti-bacterial properties.¬†¬†[6] [7]

#4: Energy

This is fairly obvious … but honey is a sugar and sugar boost energy.¬† There is anecdotal evidence to show that honey may help older dogs regain some of their energy.¬†

#5: Cardiovascular

Honey may help lower triglycerides and increase HDL (“good”) cholesterol. Increasing HDL Cholesterol helps lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol.¬† Honey also contains flavonoid antioxidants – which is associated to a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.[8] [9]

#6: Kennel Cough

Kennel Cough is a highly contagious respiratory disease.¬† It’s commonly contracted at dog boarding and daycare facilities, dog parks, dog shows, etc.

Kennel cough is typically treated with rest and/or antiobiotics.¬† There is also a vaccine called “bordetella bacterium” which many dog boarders and daycare facilities require.¬† Bordetella bacterium is the most common agent to cause kennel cough (but not the only).

We know as humans that consuming honey can provide some relief from a cough or cold … it may also help your dog with it’s cough or snotty nose.¬† Honey’s antibacterial properties may also help.¬†¬†[10] [11] [12]
