Both canine and human anecdotal evidence suggests that eating locally grown honey may help prevent seasonal allergies. The theory is that locally grown honey contains local pollen spores picked up by the bees, so consuming it can slowly build immunity to the pollen.
A study published in 2011 supports the anecdotal evidence. The study followed 44 patients diagnosed by their physicians with birch pollen allergy. The purpose was to evaluate the effects of the pre-seasonal use of birch pollen honey on the patients’ allergy symptoms and medication use during the birch pollen allergy season. The participants consumed incremental amounts of birch pollen honey from November 2008 to March 2009 and then recorded their daily allergy symptoms and medication use during the birch pollen allergy season, from April 2009 to May 2009. An additional 17 patients serving as the control group took only their usual allergy medication. The results were highly encouraging. During the 2009 birch pollen allergy season, the patients who consumed the birch pollen honey reported:
• A 60% lower total symptom score
• Twice as many asymptomatic days
• 70% fewer days with severe symptoms
• 50% less antihistamine use compared to the control group
and of korse honey is sweet so it wil be playing the roll of sugar in owr ekspeeriment and it just so happens that trixie gits a spoonful of it just like wot we ar going to be testing!!!
so their yoo go!!! its a spoonful of sugar!!! so obviusly that mayks trixie the perfekt test subjekt with me beeing the kontrol groop!!! ar their enny other kwestchuns???
payshense trixie!!! yoo kannot rush siense!!! now first to beegin the ekspeeriment dada must put yore supplements in yore fud!!!
nekst dada must put sum more supplements in yore fud!!!
wow luk at that pile of powders and wotnot!!! shoorly no dog cud posibly eet fud with all that in it!!! but wayt now it is time to add the spoonful of sugar!!!
the ekspeeriment is almost kompleet!!! now as the kontrol groop i of korse shud not hav enny sugar myself however it seems that no wun informed dada abowt this rool!!!
aaaiiiieeee dada!!! yoo hav rooind my ekspeeriment!!! yoo kannot ekspekt me not to tayst the sugar if yoo offer it to me!!! how am i suppozed to finish my skolarly treetis now that i am no longer in the kontrol groop??? and i wuz waring my lab kote and evrything!!!
wel stil let us not forgit that eeven if a siense ekspeeriment fayls we stil lern sumthing for instanse i hav lernd that it is time to eet!!!

BOL – you are so smart, Dennis! We will have to remember that the next time our pups need medicine.

That’s a good idea Dennis! Do you think we can replace the honey with ice cream too?
Dennis- you may have made mischief with the experiment, but you didn’t seem to mind the flavor of the honey. Was it the texture that made you wrinkle your nose? the Spirit of Maggie the Vizsla
That looks like an experiment worth ruining Dennis. You sure did enjoy that hunny! Like your Thundershirt. It looks good on you!
Wow….Arty has allergies…we may have to have Mama try this experiment with US too!!
Whew! That was a lot of work for that experiment. You may have to run that test a few times Dennis.
we think this might be worthy of a Nobel prize in spite of your inept assistant.
OMD DENNIS…. this is BRILLIANT..(ec Sept fur your bumbling assistant, AKA Dada) Now this is what WE think… you are now a TROO Sigh N TIST and you should become a PAWT of that super show… the BIG BANG THE ER EEEEEEee. You and SHELDON would get along grrrreat, we think.
PeeS…. a furend of ours is the Local and Past President of the Ohio Bee Keeper’s Association… and he SWEARS that EVERYONE and EVERY DAWG should have a Tease Poon of LOCAL honey EVERY SINGLE DAY.
We can’t wait to see the pea experiment. Are you going to balance them on a knife or will you make your dada do it? 🙂
Of course Mary Poppins was right!!… BUT we think that your experiment was better because really, chewing a spoonful of sugar wouldn’t be that nice… bit gritty? Anyway… so pleased it went well. That pea tip sounds excellent, let us know how it goes Dennis!
Hugs, Carrie and Pups x
We take our medicine with peanut butter, but honey sounds delish too.
Millie & Walter
In the most delightful way!
You are absolutely brilliant, Dennis!
Love ya lots♥

Wow, that was nice of Trixie to let you ‘speriment on her like that! BOL I like honey, but it gets stuck in my whiskers something fierce. Then I just wipe it on Dad’s pants. Well, I like your siense work and I’ll be asking my peeps to mix some honey in with my flea/tick meds that they put in my fur…maybe that will be good, do you think? ahem
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, Pol Comm
What an experiment you have got going on there.
OK, I just discovered giving honey to a cat has the same reaction as holding a cat when you turn the vacuum cleaner on. Currently using the honey on my wounds 🙂
Oh, you are a hunny (pun intended!)
Dennis, that was a great experiment. I have to say, though, I was extremely impressed with the dining manners exhibited by you and Miss Trixie! 🙂
I was not aware that a teaspoon of honey makes the peas taste funny. I’ve never eaten them that way
