Protexin Veterinary is pleased to announce the launch of a brand new product to aid in the management of urinary tract infections in dogs.  

The key feature in CystoPro’s effectiveness is the inclusion of Proanthocyanidins (Type A PACs).  This active ingredient is derived from cranberries, which works by reducing the ability of E.coli bacteria to infect a dog’s urinary tract.

CystoPro combines 4 innovative ingredients with a tasty artificial chicken flavour for optimum effectiveness.  Presented in a capsule formulation CystoPro contains:

  • Proanthocyanidins (Type A PACs)
    Proanthocyanidins are naturally occurring powerful antioxidants extracted from the North American cranberry.  Type A PACs inhibit the ability of E.coli to attach to the urothelium, reducing bacterial adherence, colonisation and infection.
  • Probiotic
    The EU-registered strain Enterococcus faecium (NCIMB 10415) E1707 reduces pathogenic bacteria within the gastrointestinal tract thereby lessening the risk of ascending UTIs of faecal origin.
  • Mannan-oligosaccharide
    Created from purified yeast cell walls, Mannan-oligosaccharide (MOS), binds E.coli and upregulates the innate immune system by attracting phagocytes to opsonise the bacteria. MOS is commonly used as a prebiotic to support intestinal microflora.
  • N-acetyl D-glucosamine
    N-acetyl D-glucosamine reinforces the structure of the Glycosaminoglycan (GAG) layer that lines and protects the sensitive bladder urothelium.  A strong, resilient GAG layer prevents bacteria from adhering to the urothelial cells.


CystoPro is available in boxes of 30 and 120 capsules and is available to purchase from all veterinary practices.
