    I have a 7 year old female miniature schnauzer who recently had bladder stone removal surgery. The stone analysis showed that they were composed 100% of calcium oxalate. The vet, of course, recommended that she be put on a “prescription” diet, but I think that food is just awful! Plus, there is no guarantee that even eating that food will prevent the stones from coming back 100%, so why have her eat it? I am looking for a high protein, low carb dog food. I know that most kibble is high in carbohydrates so I want to stay away from that. I am looking for a good canned food (low oxalate) or frozen/freeze dried food commercially available. A lot of the foods seem to have sweet potatoes, which are a high oxalate food, along with carrots. Besides home cooking, which I really don’t want to do since I’m not good in the kitchen, I want to make sure she gets feed a biologically complete food. Thanks!

    I would start with 5 star rated foods and glance through the ingredients, most of them are high in protein

    If you’re worried about the stones returning, you might try cranberries. They will dissolve stones, and keep them from returning. It works for people.

    Ziwipeak air dried is high protein and low carbs and no sweet potatoes. It’s basically just meat. Dogs go nuts for it.

    Have you checked out Stella and Chewy’s dog food? We have a new puppy and that is what we have her on-the dehydrated chicken.
