Maddy is on her 2nd really bad UTI since february and is being treated for incontence so I would like to start her on cranberry pills to try and help some. What I am asking is what dose do I give her? I was looking at the health food store and they have all kinds of strengths(mg) and I didn't know how much to give her. She is a lab mix and weighs between 45-49lbs. Thanks for any help.

I give 2100mg capsules starting as young as 8 weeks (if I know I have an issue) to ward off UTI's. Same dose for adult dogs.

If I test urine PH and it is high - I dble the dose for about a week, check PH again. When normal range - I drop back to 1 dose of 2100mg.

Good luck - I hope you can keep your pups problem in check.

Live organism probiotics can also help ward off UTI along with the cran caps.

If you are interested in the PH strips you need one with a range of 1-10 (human type is fine). A dog's normal PH is 5.5-7 If you want a place to get them on line PM me and I'll give you the info.
