NaturVet Cranberry Relief 68 68
cranberry relief! This product is wonderful and works within 12hrs of initial dose. I put the powder in a slice of cheese and my dog eats it right up. I do have cats but, haven't tried it out on them yet. I'm positive the result would be the same! 03/30/2011
Doctor Recommended My doctor recommended this for me because I had crystals in my urine and it was causing me to have accidents and problems with my bladder. Within about 2 weeks, I was back on track. I love it sprinkled over my food. Hasn't deterred my taste buds at all. My mom and dad also have well water, and that could be the cause of the crystals, but since I've been on this stuff, I'm good! 03/02/2011
CRANBERRY RELIEF product review: One of the most natural and effective anti bacterial and anti inflammatory substances for use in bladder inflammations/infections has been the use of cranberry tablets or extracts. Laboratory studies have shown cranberry's ability to reduce adherance of E Coli(a common cause of urinary infections) to the bladder lining of people. In simple urinary tract infections/inflammations, I will often reach for a product like this first,(especially in cats with acute urinary tract inflammation) along with having clients give extra amounts of vitamin C in the form of Ester C dosed from 250 mg twice daily(in cats) up to 1 or 2 grams daily in dogs for an acute flareup of a urinary tract problem. This product does not have enough vitamin C in it by itself to be effective, so I will often use both cranberry relief product and vitamin C together in my patients with signs of acute urinary tract inflammation/infection. The addition of the immune stimulant echinacea makes this product even more attractive. The only concerns I would have for clients using cranberry relief tablets and/or vitamin C would be if their pet has a history of chronic urinary tract problems, or prior problems with crystals called calcium oxylates or urate stones. In those cases I would not want to use products like cranberry or vitamin C, as the acidification of the urine can possibly increase the risk of developing these other type of crystals. However in the short term and in most patients, using cranberry and vitamin C short term can often offer dramatic relief to urinary symptoms. With male cats, and even male dogs, guardians must always be certain that some urine is coming out during times of acute urinary flareups, as in these cases, sometimes male pets can have crystal and mucous buildup in the urethra or bladder that can lead to blockages, which can be medical emergencies. If in doubt about it, a veterinary exam would always be recommended. My overall rating of this product however is a 4. Its efficacy a 4 and its ease of use/taste a 4 as well. 12/29/2008
So thankful... I read the reviews on this product here, and thought I'd give it a shot. My kitty has been getting UTI's for the last couple years, but this year she's had 3, which was quite worrying (and expensive). Every time I've taken her to the vet, they have given her antibiotics, and taken a urine sample. Every time the urinalysis came back, it showed she was clear of any harmful bacteria (so the antibiotics weren't helpful). My vet said that for some cats, they are very sensitive to stress and this causes inflammation in the bladder or urinary tract, causing her to have painful/frequent urination and blood in her urine. The last UTI she had went away on it's own. I just stayed with her for every hour besides when I was working to protect her from some bully cats in our neighborhood that might be causing the extra stress. (Also bought her some UT Support treats and Feliway for stress reduction). That worked last time. This time I feared I'd have to take her back because she really looked to be in pain... but I read about this product, (so I bought it from a local pet store, just cause I needed it right away for her) and tried it first before taking her to the vet (which is also quite stressful for her). It worked! Within two days of giving her Cranberry Relief she was urinating much less frequently And now she is actually using her litter box instead of in the bathroom sink, on my laundry or on my bathroom mat. She does not look to be in any pain, and she's purring for no apparent reason (I assume just from not being uncomfortable anymore.) I'm really happy with the results of this product. I did notice that she did not eat the food I put it in, in any larger doses than one scoop, with half a can of wet food, at least not right away. I had to not give her any alternative food and wait, and she eventually ate it. My other cat, who has never had UT problems, munched up the food better than my cat who needed the Cranberry Relief. Try this product. I'm really glad I did, and I will use it for maintenance as well in the future. 11/01/2013
We love it! I love NaturVet Cranberry Relief because my 6 yr old doxie (Gretchen) has not developed any bladder infections or made any more stones. Our vet in TX recommended this product and sold it in his office for Gretchen after bladder surgery to remove several stones. I love it because my dogs don't mind the taste. I love it because it is easy to mix with their food. I love it because my 15 year old Lab has found some relief from urinary frequency. She has ongoing bladder problems and also takes "Leak No More". I don't expect a cure for her because there is a good chance that she may have cancer. All I want for her at this time is comfort. Our next step is a bladder scan and that is too expensive right now. Also, she is too old to have surgery according to our vet. As for Cranberry Relief - We all love it! I would definitely recommend it. 10/22/2013

I noticed my cat he has been in the litter box a lot can this be used to help him
It seems like all the ingredients are safe for human consumption. I have a UTI and am too cheap to go to doctor. I feel if its safe for my cat, then its got to be safe for me. We are both mammals. What is 1800PetMeds view on this? Am I crazy for wanting to share this product with my cat?
