Veterinary Trial Confirms That Cranimals UTI Supplement Equivalent to Antibiotics
Cranimals reports that its Cranimals Original Urinary Tract Pet Supplement was independently tested in Taiwan and had a 100% success rate in the prevention of canine Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) caused by E. Coli.
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, April 27, 2016(Newswire.com) – An independent in vivo and in vitro veterinary study published in the American Journal of Veterinary Research [77(4), 2016], compared Cranimals Original UTI supplement to the antibiotic cephalexin. Based on both clinical signs and laboratory urinanalysis, none of the dogs receiving Cranimals Original developed a UTI. All dogs were expected to contract a UTI during the 6 month experimental period based on their medical histories.
Scanning Electron Microscopy confirmed that Cranimals Original significantly reduced the ability of E Coli to attach to canine kidney/uroepithelial cells, and this effect became more pronounced, the longer Cranimals Original was administered. There is general consensus that E Coli successfully infects the urinary tract of animals and humans by adhering to the uroepithelium, preventing it from being flushed out via urine flow, one of the bladders’ most important defenses.
Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) are common in dogs and cats, and pet UTIs are typically treated with antibiotics. This easily leads to the overuse and misuse of these antibiotic drugs. Pathogens like E Coli are rapidly becoming resistant to many antibiotics used in veterinary and human medicine. The transfer of these antibiotic resistant strains of E coli between animals and humans is concerning. Bacterial resistance also leads to unresolved or recurrent urinary tract infections; infection related complications (struvite stones, urinary blockage, renal damage), and increased economic costs (repeated treatments). The widespread use of natural therapies such as Cranimals Original, to help reduce antibiotic use is crucial to ensure conventional drug therapies remain effective.
Cranimals Original has been used successfully by integrated veterinary care practitioners. It is ideal to prevent recurrent infections and in pets at high risk of developing UTIs (bladder cancer, diabetes, polypoid cystitis, compromised immune systems) without the long terms use of antibiotics. This study adds further scientific validation for its use in conventional veterinary practice, and substantiates Cranimals as the leader in natural urinary tract remedies for dogs, puppies and cats.
