Nutramax Crananidin is a scientifically formulated bioactive cranberry
extract product. It's given to help support urinary tract health in dogs.
Crananidin's cranberry extract contains compounds called proanthocyanidins or
PACs. These PACs work to help stop certain bacteria from sticking or
attaching to the inner lining of the bladder wall allowing the bacteria to be
flushed out in the urine.
Crananidin has been researched, and its PACs have been
shown to limit the attachment of the bacteria. The same cannot be said for other
cranberry supplements marketed for urinary tract health in dogs. These other
supplements were found to contain some PACs, however, their PACs were not able
to stop the bacteria from sticking.
Administration of Crananidin is not associated with any
known side effects in dogs. There are also no known interactions between
Crananidin and any drug or other nutritional supplement in dogs.
