    My baby Penny recently had bladder stone surgery. The made me change her diet to Cd and then Royal Canian SO. Penny hatted it. Started researching. First mistake, increase water
    Second mistake dry food

    Now I make Penny a very healthy non grain food with fresh veggies. I grind my own hormone and antibiotic free chicken thighs and get her nice beef. Going and cook. Add wild rice, which is a grass seed. Zucchini, sweet potato, green beans, squash, pumpkin are all great to add. I keep the bulk in the freezer to keep fresh. Penny gets a cup of meat and veggies with a cup of water added. If she wants the yummy meat, she must drink water.

    I will find a more holestic vet in my area.

    No grains, extra water and check ph of urine.

    Have you used the search engine here to look up “bladder stones”. Example: https://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/forums/topic/crystalstone-in-bladder/

    Be careful regarding “homeopathic vets”
    A lot of these conditions are genetic, there are no miracle cures. The increase in water and frequent bathroom breaks are a must…..my dog has not had a recurrence of stones in over 4 years now.

    Thank you

    I actually enjoy cooking for our babies. Antibiotic free chicken an beef, squash, carrots, zucchini, blue berries, organic coconut oil

    My groomer remarked how much better their skin and coats are. Penny, extra water with her food. I cannot believe people feed their dogs that nasty prescription food full of corn and grain.

    For Penny its genetic. Water is a must! She should have never been placed on dry

    But now a healthier leaner dog has emerged. Plus her poop is less. 😉 Win Win
