My two girls 13 years 8 months have just been diagnosed with silica stones.One has had two surgeries in the past. One for Oxalate and one for struvite. She has had the hydropulsion to wash out eight silica stones. The other has one small silica stone.These stones were seen on ultrasound. I have been aware all these years of how to try to keep the stones out. Giving lots of distilled water, canned food and watching the diet with very good quality food. Vets go back and forth in changing foods and I do not think Vets know anything about food. Again the stone problem has come up and this time silica. The Vets again do not know what kind of food to recommend. When having the stones researched to find the kind they are, I received information from Minnesota Lab about the kind of food to avoid. I need to find the kind of food they CAN have. Can anyone send information about a food that has worked for your pets (canine) that is a lasting food for good health?
I am desperate to find a food for my girls for their good health.
Thank you so very much.September 24, 2018 at 7:10 pm in reply to: Is there a grain-free food for dogs with urinary problems? #122304 Report AbuseLinda HMember
My two girls have silica stones and I cannot find a food for them. I saw someone suggested Nulo Sr Trout but cannot find that, also Nulo Large Dog Chicken or Turkey. what is the brand name? Is it Nulo? does it require a prescription from a vet?
My vet told me to get Hills canine low fat i?D stew # prn. This is Pork and have no way of knowing about this food.He also said he does not know about silica so I am trying to research this food before starting them on it.
Can the person recommending Nulo please let me know about it and has it helped with the silica stones?
Has anyone reported what causes these stones? One of my girls has has Oxolate and Struvite and I can find information about that but not silica.
Please send any information. Thanks.
