Organic Cranberry Powder for dogs and cats is ethically cultivated from cranberry bogs and processed without irradiation, chemicals or additives. The whole, fresh berries are freeze-dried and ground, making sure that all of the beneficial nutrients are preserved until you open the package.
This cranberry powder is a rich source of proanthocyanidins that help to prevent pathogenic bacteria like E. coli from adhering to the cell walls of the urinary tract. It also has a high antioxidant ORAC rating of 9,090 and is a great source of natural vitamin C! Loaded with antioxidants, flavonoids, and other phytonutrients, cranberries can also help support healthy teeth and gums.
What is silicon dioxide?
The organic cranberry powder we provide for your dog or cat does NOT contain this chemical! Silicon dioxide is an industrial flow agent that acts as a drying agent to prevent clumping in packaged powders. Most cranberry powder supplements contain this chemical, even if it is not listed on the label! How is that? Well, ingredients do not have to be included on the label if they make up less than 2% of the contents or the packager has not included this chemical thenselves. How can you tell if the cranberry powder you may have purchased in the past contains silicon dioxide? Check the color. If the cranberry powder is pink/light red then it most likely contains this chemical. Compare other products to our organic cranberry powder that is a deep red color, and may have some occasional clumps, but does not contain silicon dioxide that can irritate your dog or cat's kidneys!
What to Look for in a Superior Cranberry Powder
✓ Organic Cranberries
Our formula contains certified USDA organic cranberries. Research shows organic foods have higher amounts of important nutrients as opposed to conventionally raised plants. Organic farming methods are also better for the environment and of course do not have the levels of residual pesticides that conventionally grown foods can have.
✓ Natural Ingredients
Natural ingredients are going to be gentler on your animal's body when compared to synthetic chemical ingredients or medications. The proper natural constituents are able to provide the body with what it needs to heal and get better. This is in direct contrast to synthetic ingredients or medications that can be especially hard on the liver and kidneys. Medications are also designed to have a symptom suppressing action in line with the principles of allopathic medicine which is to create a diagnoses and then use drugs to suppress symptoms. Using this course of action can never result in true healing and is not really meant to.
✓ Uses only Human Grade Ingredients
Our products are manufactured using human grade ingredients. In the pet industry this is far from the rule as many companies use pet quality ingredients, those considered "not fit for human consumption".
✓ Uses Fresh, High Quality Ingredients
We purchase our ingredients from some of the most highly regarded companies in their respective fields so you and your animals are ensured the finest quality supplements. In addition, we purchase in small quantities to make sure the products we provide to you are fresh and bursting with important nutrients. This is in direct contrast to many other products on the market that can spend a year or longer sitting in non-climate controlled warehouses before they even get to you.

About the Organic Ingredients in This Formula
Cranberry Powder Studies have shown that cranberries contain proanthocyanidins that possess anti-clinging properties that help prevent bacteria from binding to the cells on the walls of the urinary tract. Because of this they have a reputation for helping to prevent and alleviate urinary tract infections. The flavonoids in cranberries also offer benefits to the cardiovascular system, immune system and play a role in oral health as well.
Please note that many people feel that using cranberry powder can alleviate UTI's. It can help speed the healing process, however, the best use of cranberry powder is to use on a consistent basis to prevent recurring UTI's before they occur. In other words, to prevent the bacteria from adhering and multiplying in the first place that leads to infection.
Provide 1/8 tsp (200 mg) per 15 lbs daily. Mix with water before adding to meal or when in food dish so it isn't dry. Since cranberry can be a little bitter you may mix into some favorite food or make a meatball to feed separately from main meal.
Important: Consult with a holistic practitioner if your animal's condition worsens. Cranberry is more effective at preventing urinary tract infections than eliminating them as it helps to prevent E. coli and other bacteria from adhering to the walls of the urinary tract to prevent future infections. Use with caution in animals with a history of calcium oxalate kidney stones.
Storage: Store at room temperature away from heat and moisture. You may refrigerate for longer term storage.
