glyconutrients & struvite crystals

I've been doing research on glyconutrients and human consumption and accidently came upon using it for dogs and cats. This has been highly successful in preventing UTIs and Johns Hopkins has successfully used it in treating prostate cancer.

So my question is: does anyone know if this can be used for dogs who have struvite crystals? And what amount can a 10lb dog get?

Basically, there are varieties of amino acids making up proteins and glyconutrients are the sugars.

I heard about it when researching Dr. Ben Carson of Johns Hopkins.

Hi Nancy, I asked Sabine if she's heard of them being used for struvites in dogs ? Here's her reply

"No, but I recommend D-Mannose for UTI's.

Struvites are generally a byproduct of bacterial infections"

Thanks for the information Dave. That is just the kind I bought. I'm hoping for good results.
