|I give a small amount of raw honey to all three of my dogs sometimes. They enjoy it. I used to give it daily to my one dog with seasonal allergies. Depending on my source of local honey, it was at times very helpful for her. If you are looking for honey with the strongest healing properties for wounds, check out Manuka honey. It is a certain type of honey that is sometimes available in health food stores. It is definitely pricier than regular honey, but in your situation, may be worth it.
I checked my back issues of Whole Dog Journal for you. In the September 2007 issue, there is a honey article (back issues or articles can be purchased off their website). I didn't see a "dosage" there, but it described all the different uses and health benefits of honey. For Trixie's allergies, I used to give her 1 Tablespoon a day, and she's 50 pounds. As long as you give her an amount within reason, I think you'll be fine. Because you are trying to soothe her throat and aide healing, you might want to offer her small amounts several times a day. Keep us posted on how she's doing.
