Berry Balance is a natural powder supplement containing cranberry and blueberry extract to help support a healthy functioning urinary tract. It can be very helpful for dogs and cats prone to struvite crystals and bladder infections. This product helps to balance the urinary tract pH and dissolve struvite crystals, which may develop in urine if it is too alkaline.

Cranberries and blueberries contain a substance called hippuric acid, which has been shown in recent studies to have antibacterial activity. This helps prevent bacteria such as E-coli from adhering to the bladder wall.

Available in a 3.5 oz. Container.

    Amazing Product

    By Solana

    Pros

    • Easy To Administer

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Daily Care
      • Older Pets
      • Treat Specific Illnesses

      Comments about Solid Gold Berry Balance:

      One of my two dogs used to get bladder infections. The last one she had was quite painful for her b/c she had formed crystals. She is half Shih Tzu and Bichon Frise and the Shih Tzu breed can be prone to crystals and bladder issues. The vet always puts her on antibiotics to rid the infection...however it works temporarily and I believe she gets them again b/c all the good bacteria has been wiped out from the antibiotics. Needless to say whenever she is on Berry Balance she has ZERO issues. Her urinalysis always comes back clean as well. She is on the maintenance dose and will remain on it for the rest of her days. The times I have stopped using it she has gotten infections. I combine this product with the Tract Ease (also maintenance dose). I give her a probiotic as well. This combination keeps her bladder healthy and she is a happy girl! It's easy to administer these things. The Berry Balance I just sprinkle on her food, the Tract Ease is liquid, so on the days she does not have Berry Balance (maintenance dose only 3 days a week) I put a few drops of Tract Ease in her food. The probiotic she gets everyday now and I just crush the tablet up in put it in her food. I hope this helps someone else that may be struggling to help their dog get rid of chronic bladder/urinary infections as well as crystals. The other thing I forgot to mention is the vet often says crystals form as a result of diet and prefers her to remain on a U/T support food (the brand shall remain nameless)...it is not good food with lots of by products in it. I had her on it briefly but have since started incorporating her other food (Orijen brand), which is a far superior product. Her urinalysis still comes back normal and clean, so I am not totally 100% convinced she has to be on this special U/T food in order to avoid crystals/infections.

      Comments about Solid Gold Berry Balance:

      None of my cats like the taste in food. I had some gelatin capsules left over from a different feline health issue and started filling the caps with the berry powder: success! The Size 0 gelatin caps hold just over 1/8 tsp. I lost one cat 15 years ago due to crystals. My older cat was going to pee a lot and small amounts. I started dosing him with this powder and it went away. My 4 yr old cat recently had UTI, peeing abt a pea-sized amt at a time. Along with meds, a moderate adjmt to food (c/d plus regular kibble), giving him more fluids (homemade chkn broth), I have been dosing him three times a day with this to get it under control. He is back to normal. I'll be using for him regularly, and the other cat occasionally esp. in winter. I HIGHLY recommend!!

          Give it to our dachshund because he has a liver shunt. He gets crystals in urine and this helps keep them under control. I have nothing negative to say about it.

          Using it for my lab who has had recurrent uti's. She has been fighting e. Coli bacteria for 4 months. This was recommended by a specialist to help her fight this off. So far, it is working well, along with using probiotics and a new class of antibiotics. I plan on keeping her on the suggested maintenance dose after this month is over.

              Comments about Solid Gold Berry Balance:

              I count on these reviews to see if I would like to try a product. When you are searching for something to take away your loved ones discomfort or pain it is important to pass along your experience so others can make an informed decision. My 10 yr old tom cat Dashabout was having reoccurring urinary tract infections/crystals. I have been using this product SGBB along with tinkle tonic for over 10 weeks now, also changed from dry to can food. The first two weeks we used recommended amounts and he had some aversion to the way it changed the taste of the food, but that quickly changed when I added a little water to the top of the can food. He really liked the flavored water along with his food. Which is a great thing as he needed to up his intake of water to help flush his system. Hope to work in the budget a drinking fountain for both the dog and cat but for now we keep a pitcher of water in the fridge to give them, they seem to like the cold water better during this very hot summer. We have been on the maintenance dose for 3 weeks. We no longer have a problem and are very pleased! It was the same routine each time I went to the vet. Urine sample confirmed crystals, I was given antibiotics. Which if you do not know it yet, is very hard to administer in pill form to a cat. He would just throw them up and I would find them everywhere. I crushed, then he did not want to eat the can cat food(CD)the vet recommended. So believing in my vet I followed his plan. Due to the fact I could not keep the pills down I usually had to go for a 2nd round. The infection would seem to abate only to reappear in 2 months and so on. Well not only the expense at the vet, your cat will avoid his litter box due to pain association, I decided I better get more information on the situation. I made mistakes too and found blind belief in ones vet is not a good idea. So now after doing a lot of reading and investigating I have found more information on this urinary issue. Along with diet(better can food), supplements, your vet and some great people online we are better informed and will continue to use these products for maintenance so my buddy Dashabout will not have to suffer through this again. I found a ref on this site for a website to help with change over to can food and getting the cat back to the litter box. This site was VERY helpful! Here it is again and if you are researching as many of us did for this subject you will try anything before surgery and for the cost of [$] it turned out to be a very good choice for us! I hope it is for you, if not keep looking! catinfo.org

                Comments about Solid Gold Berry Balance:

                I adopted a 2yr old Siamese mix from a rescue group. For the first 4 months she was sick with several different things. The vet just kept putting her on Antibiotics and when one problem would clear up another illness would start. Along with other things she had two UTI's in a 2 month period. The vet said she will just probably continue to get the UTI's and we can try and put her on Prozac and continue with antibiotics and pain meds. Well I didn't want her on meds and Prozac her entire life. I did some research and put her on Berry Balance and Tract-Ease. I used the Berry Balance 2x day for 1 month and the used Tract-Ease 3x day for 1 month. I am now using Berry Balance 3x week and Tract-Ease 2x day. It's been 2 months and she has not had any UTI or any other illness at all. She appears to be very healthy. I will slowly cut down again on the Tract-Ease. Both products last a long time because for an 8lb cat you really don't use much at all. I'm very happy with the results of these 2 products. I also put her on a probiotic because she was on the antibiotics for such a long time that I wanted to put the good bacteria back into her system.
