CRANIMALS™ ORIGINAL is a proprietary extract made from 100% certified organic cranberries. An independent veterinary trial published in the American Journal of Veterinary Research ((vol. 77 (4), 2016)) found that Cranimals Original was beneficial for dogs suffering from urinary tract infections when following dosage directions on the label.
A single dose provides ~2000 mg of pure unadulterated food grade cranberry extract, the most concentrated source of proanthocyanidins (PAC's) currently available on the market. Many research studies have shown that the phytochemicals in cranberries inhibit the adhesion of E. coli* (the bacteria responsible for most urinary tract infections) to the lining of the urinary tract. Cranberry extract may also be beneficial for dental health (i.e. helps to discourage the growth of plaque on teeth and gums), because it exhibits the same anti-adhesion effect in oral cavities. The supplement is successfully used by holistic veterinarians in North America, Europe and Asia.
Using natural remedies for common pet health issues such as UTIs helps cut down on antibiotic overuse and resulting bacterial resistance, as well as side effects that may be encountered when drug based medications are used. Cranimals Original is also vegan and non-GMO.
