Re: UTI's?

I have had good luck with the Berry Balance by solid gold. There are some Chinese herbs that are good too and Animals Apawthecary makes Tinkle Tonic, a tincture that also works.

The Nancy's yogurts, which are made out your way, might be a good option. And there is a company that sweetens with fruit juice. Hang on, I'll find it...

It's Cascade Fresh.

Re: UTI's?

Nancy's is at Trader Joes. I'll run by there today. They may have Cascade Fresh too. Thanks Ruth.

Tinkle Tonic. (love the name!) Anything else I should pick up while I'm paying for shipping anyhow? (for Meri, Camper, Boni, me, Dh? )

Oh, wait, do you recommend an online retailer?

Re: UTI's?

http://www.onlynaturalpet.com

I love that store because you can search under the problem and they have unbiased reviews: http://search.onlynaturalpet.com/sea...terms=UTI&mf=0

I've used the Nature's Herbs for pets and it worked very well.

And if you start looking around on there I'm sure you'll find plenty of things to buy...

They have Cascade Fresh in the stores out there...at least I know they have it at Ballard Market!

And could you pick up some dehydrated mango for me at Trader Joe's? Actually, hang on and I'll send you a whole list for Trader Joe's!

Re: UTI's?

Sure. Mango is easy. You're not going to want perishables, are you?
If you are, it might be cheaper for me to just send you a plane ticket!

Re: UTI's?

Ok....here it is ... the Bouncing Cranberry

(kind of like the Dancing Banana for the SIBO sufferers)...

We just got our culture results back, and after over 2 months of UTI, Meri is bacteria-free!

She LOVES Tinkle Tonic, tolerates ACV, but HATES blueberry yogurt. (My dogs are weird; what can I say?)

We're staying on cranberry capsules, Tinkle Tonic, and ACV indefinitely.

The Happy Pee Dance!

My pup has been running UTIs since I got her. I'm running out of ideas. If I can load her up on yogurt (she's not thrilled with plain yogurt), that might be useful as well.

(I'm giving acidophilus, but yogurt has other beneficial stuff too, as you know).

Thanks

Sorry I missed this. I guess I never thought about the sugar. I guess since they only get one to two spoonfuls a day I never considered it. They just get enough to get their pills (including cranberry) down the hatch. Most of my guys love pumpkin so I use that but lil miss Lakota decided she likes her blueberry Yoggie better and now wont eat pumpkin. Being on a raw diet helps to keep sugars otherwise out of their diet. I am thinking about adding ACV to their diet again....somehow. I will try to remember to look at the sugar next time I get yoggie and see if I can find something with less sugar in it.

Re: UTI's?

What cranberry capsules have you been using? I got some from vitamins.com but with 6 dogs and 2 of them having recurring issues (which causes me to suppliment EVERYONE to be sure) I go through a LOT of cranberry pills. They had them buy 1 get 2 free so I thought I stocked up......I am nearly out already. I am beginning to think I should calulate a years supply of cranberries/blueberries and buy and dehydrate them by the truck load this fall. My guys even like blueberries fresh with their dinner.

With fresh blueberries does anyone know how many they should get?

Yikes, no. But I don't use it unless Chama is having a problem. I really would recommend against using it for the dogs who don't need it. Actually I think it even says on the container to only use it for a certain amount of time and then back off considerably.

Have you tried anything else? Maybe something else would take care of the problem?

Re: UTI's?

I use the gel caps that Costco sells --- TruNature brand. I pinprick the end and squeeze it in. Ok, my crazy pup who doesn't like yogurt will play with the capsule and eventually eat it. (She's soooo weird. ).

The bottle contains 180 capsules (300mg each) for $12.39.

Oh wait, here it is: http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product.asp...-Cat589&topnav=


Nice thing about Costco is that it's quality at decent quantity. Good for dog packs.

Hmmm. They have more handy supplements online than they do in the store. Ruth, Milk Thistle?

And I grow blueberries. Meri eats them right off the bush. She thinks she's sneaky, grabs one and runs off under a bush to chomp on it, then runs back for more. Did I mention she's a bit odd, that one?
