Bladder Stones
by: jcrply

WHOLE DOG JOURNAL has an excellent article on this topic. It is long, so I will quote just one little bit of it, "...Because different stones require entirely different treatment -and often completely opposite treatment -it’s critical to identify the type of stone accurately. Without removing a stone there is no way to know for sure, but a very good guess can be made based on urinary pH; the dog’s age, breed, and sex; type of crystals, if present; radiographic density (how well the stones can be seen on x-ray); whether infection is present; and certain blood test abnormalities...." The article addresses many, many issues about this topic including whether a diet change is actually needed (probably not...drinking more water is the most important thing), and I highly recommend that you read all of it. You can find the article on bladder stones here.
