I can't say that I ever noticed Arwen having gas with the cranberries, BUT.... she and both boys have all had surgeries along with multiple runs of anti-biotics off and on all this year, and those definitely were all accompanied by 'nuclear toxic waste' type gas.....

Between the gas clouds and 16 weeks (as of this coming Monday) of renovations the house smells like a dusty fart.... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Too many Cranberries can cause a dog gas. Just a few will do.

I wasn't sure if Cassie would eat them. When I got her and for a long time after, she wouldn't eat anything veggie or fruit. I had to start adding green beans and put broth on them. After that she has had sweet potatoes, beans, carrots, pumpkin, asparagus, banana. I had some dried cranberries and just put a few on her breakfast and she ate them right up, so I will see if they help her.

Thank you all for your replies.

Sandi, our vet told us how much to use for Arwen. We only use the "Cranraisins" ones, not fresh ones. We also only give them to her if we see signs of a UTI, - don't know if they can be used on a more regular / daily basis.

I never knew cranberries were good for dogs. So you give them raw as opposed to cooking them? My Zoey is 14 lbs. any idea what amount would be good for her? I read the link and they also suggested sugar free cranberry juice.

Darlene, yes cranberries are safe for dogs.

We routinely give them to Arwen if we suspect she may be brewing an UTI - something she's been plagued with for most of her life. If she doesn't seem any better after a couple of days with some cranberries in her system then we know she needs to see the vet and get put on anti - biotics, but most of the time the cranberries work their magic!

She weighs roughly 65 - 70ish pounds and gets about a handful with her food (once daily) as well as a couple at a time instead of the usual biscuit she would have for coming indoors when she's called.

This all on the suggestion of our vets, and has probably reduced the number of times she's required anti - biotics by about 90%!!!

Hope Cassie feels better soon!!!

Does anyone know if cranberries are safe for dogs? I am thinking Cassie might have a problem, though she isn't peeing more than usual. She is licking, though. I don't want to give her something that would hurt her.
