Studies show that D Mannose reduces the risk of recurrent urinary tract infections as well as preventing them in dogs as well as people.
According to Washington University School of Medicine, urinary tract infections start once E. coli (which lives in the digestive tract and anal area) moves to the bladder, then passes through the protective cell coating which lines the bladder.
Then once urination starts, it eliminates the E. coli from the bladder. Unfortunately, all the bacteria doesn’t always get eliminated because its lectins adhere the E. coli to the dog’s bladder wall and can’t be easily rinsed away with urine flow.
Studies also show that bacteria levels in rats were reduced in one –two days. That’s pretty good.
