Paxon Urinary Tract Supplement
Supports Urinary Health In Dogs
Vétoquinol Paxon is a chewable supplement that provides
dogs with extra support for optimal bladder function. Each tablet
contains 100 mg of concentrated cranberry extract, and is equivalent to
one glass of cranberry juice.
Cranberries have long been heralded as a supportive fruit for
maintaining urinary tract health in people (particularly women).
Paxon to find
an easy-to-administer way to provide dogs with the same benefits in a
sugar-free, oxalate-free flavored tablet. Paxon's cranberry
extract formula provides at least 30 mg of polyphenols, the highest
level of any product currently on the market, and is produced through a
selective extraction process.
Cranberry products reduce the adhesion of bacteria to the cell surface.
The kind of polyphenols specific to cranberries, called A-type
proanthocyanidins (PACs), have been identified as the active component
responsible for this property.
Cranberry PACs cause the fimbriæ on the surface of the bacteria to
become compressed, reducing their potential adhesion. They may also
change the shape of the bacteria and cause chemical changes to their
surface membranes, thus reducing the bacteria's ability to function normally.
