      Check the ingredients. You want to avoid sugars as they can increase the possibility of the problem you are trying to avoid. Without sugar and in moderation, cranberry supplements may be okay.

      It’s believed that cranberry prevents bacteria from attaching itself to the walls of the urinary tract and thus allows it to flush through the system. However, consistent use could affect the pH of your dog’s urine which could cause other problems. There are test strips you can use to test the pH of your dog’s urine. Feeding large amounts of cranberries to dogs can lead to the development of calcium oxalate stones in their bladders. Just be mindful.

      Flavored yogurts generally have too much sugar in them to be helpful to your dog. The extra sugar can create an imbalance that could lead to a yeast infection. Plain yogurt — no flavors — is okay.

      Glucosamine and chondroitin promote healthy cartilage in joints and are used for the treatment of arthritis, including hip dysplasia, in dogs.
