juice to your daily or weekly diet. Cranberry may cut the risk of urinary tract infections.
You can also take cranberry supplements in capsule form. Step 2. Drink plenty of water
to flush out the urinary tract. Step 3. Skip the tub and use the shower instead. Bacteria
can easily enter the urethra in a hot bath. Step 4. Avoid feminine hygiene sprays and
douches. They can irritate the urethra and increase the risk of an infection. Step 5.

tract. Step 7. Urinate following sexual intercourse. Bacteria can enter the urethra during intercourse;
going to the bathroom immediately after sex helps flush out bacteria. Step 8. If you experience
UTI symptoms, such as a frequent urge to urinate and a painful, burning feeling in the area
of the bladder or urethra during urination, see your doctor. Did you know Urinary tract
infections account for about 8.3 million doctor visits each year.

    but can you give cranberry's to cats?

  • Reply Brittany Way January 26, 2010 at 5:13 pm


    Yes, you can.

    When my sister's cats had a UTI the vet had us mix water with cranberry juice, and he drank it just fine, you might need to coax your cat though, but check to make sure that your cat isn't allergic or anything to it.

    thanks. I did a google search on the subject and it is ok. Just to be carefull of the kinds that have less then 25% juice because they are mostly HFC and water.

    Well, wiping front to back (esp. after doing the #2) is particularly good information for ladies. I heard it in my physiology class as well.
