    DefaultQuestion for those who give cranberry capsules.

    Where do you buy them and how much do you give? I thought I would try them for Kate. TIA

    Are you doing this because of uti's or crystals?
    I gave them to rex, along with vitamin c. I used human, nature's bounty....some come mixed with c or some just cran caps.
    The container says "fruit 4200 mg" and suggests for humans 2 caps a day. I gave him 1 and he never had crystals again.

    Thanks Bett. I want to try them for Kate. She has very mild spay incontinence and I have heard these may help. I also have talked to my vet about a natural supplement called Bladder Strength. I would rather try a natural approach first.

    I wanted to add, that since rex's liver failure, we had to take him off everything except milk thistle and sam- e.they wont even let me home cook a diet that supports the liver.
    Good luck! I know it's different but it helped rex.

    Since Kate goes months without any leakage, we didn't want to put her on DES or Proin. If it was an everyday thing maybe I would have to do medication, but our vet agrees to try a natural approach first. She said it would not hurt. I am not a big fan a just starting medication when the problem is not a daily occurance.

    We get ours at local drug store. Tootsie only gets 475mg once a day and it seems to be enough for her.

    I usually just toss them twice a day into the food georgie. You can get them just about at any pharmacy. Double check the ingredients as some contain other vitamins, which you don't need. There are some that are just cranberries, which is what you want.
