Resolved Question:

Expert:  Dr. Gary replied 8 years ago.
The recommended dosage for cranberry juice is 1 mL/kg per day. This would be 0.5 mL/lb per day. There are 30 mL in 1 ounce.

For dry extract, the dosage is 20 mg/kg per day or 10 mg/lb per day.

I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.
