Default Is Honey bad for dogs?

I thought I had a pretty thorough list of things you're not supposed to give
to dogs, but the other day I was reading a bottle of clover honey, and saw
the warning "do not give to children under 1 year of age".

I don't have kids, so maybe a parent here can answer WHY this is, and also
if there are any known issues with giving a small amount to a 6 year old
dog?


thanks

Don't have any kids either, but know that the reason is botulism. A
more detailed explanation can be found he

As far as I know, there shouldn't be any problems. After all, there are
PB & Honey dog biscuits out there (probably with very little honey in it).

Very small children often have very severe allergies to honey. I don't have
a clue about dogs, though.

Certainly not everything made for dogs is also safe for dogs.

I found this article that will explain honey and dogs. It is safe, but not
with babies as was mentioned above:

A friend of ours is a beekeeper and we have been adding raw honey to our
dogs food for years.

We use very little processed sugar in our house - (haven't bought a bag in
years) , instead we substitute raw honey. It tastes wonderful in coffee!
