You have to know that 3/4 of cystitis cases (bladder inflammation) are due to colds caught by the animal.

Only 20% of cystitis are due to infection or crystals.
-Your dog wants to stay longer outside, it is normal in this lively period of the year, but protect him from extra long periods in cold and humid surroundings.
So cranberry acidifies the urine to help dissolve crystals but has no effect on cold defense.
- At stores, were they sell natural products, you will find homeopatic complexes that relieve this inflammation of the bladder.
-You can order at the drugstore a homeopatic formula called CYSTIVET made by Boiron or Homeodel.

You can give 3 granules 4 times a day to the dog even 2-3 days after he is OK.

Good luck
