She discovered this honey that's native to New Zealand and parts of Australia and it's called manuka honey.
"How can Manuka honey help your dog?
Many dog owners have long known about Manuka honey, applying it to wounds for quicker healing times. Manuka can also be applied to cuts or burns, or to treat any kind of wound or infection.
Manuka can also be used internally for conditions such as kennel cough, by alleviating many of your dog’s symptoms. Depending on your dog’s size, a dose of 1/2 to 1 teaspoon three or four times a day may do the trick. Choose a UMF10+ or more or an MGO™100 (Bronze) or higher.
Manuka can also be used to treat allergies, digestive issues and stomach ulcers. A good maintenance dose for your pooch should be anywhere from 1/2 to 1 teaspoon a day. Again, dosage depends on the size of your dog.
Manuka, as with all honey, contains a high sugar content, so if your dog is diabetic or overweight, it’s best to consult your veterinarian before giving Manuka to your dog. Manuka is not recommended for dogs under a year of age. Manuka may contain bacteria that your puppy isn’t ready to fight off. Adult dogs have no problems with it."
We have a natural food store that's only a mile away from us so mom took a ride down and came back with a jar of it. It's not cheap but hey, if it works than it's worth it, right?!
It's not runny and messy. It's soft but firm.
Oh and btw, so far, so good for me. I'm not showing any kennel cough signs and neither is Jett, according to dad. We are hoping and praying that it stays this way and the sickness doesn't spread any further!
