    I read on line that Cockers are prone to struvite crystals. Have you had the pH of your pup’s urine tested? Struvite crystals thrive in an alkaline urine. When struvite crystals were found in my female dog’s urine, she was given a course of antibiotics and then methionine tablets to keep the urine acidic. She never had another infection. She was on the methionine tablets for the rest of her life. Methionine tablets are available without prescription.

    In my view a dog has a genetic predisposition to cancer. We all know of dogs living to 16 plus years fed on grocery store kibble. If we feed our dogs carefully and provide regular vet care etc., we are doing all we can to keep them healthy.
