    HI,

    My 12.5 old mini poodle had a severe case of pancreatitis and was in hospital for 3 days. She is on a diet of boiled chicken, rice, scrambled egg, and Royal Canin Gastrointestinal….low fat high protein diet. I just found out she has poor kidney function and needs to be on a low protein diet for that…so I need to somehow combine these 2 issues. Does anyone have a suggestion. The vet said the pancreatitis was the more important issue.

    Thanks,

    I have a 12.5 year old mini poodle who just had a severe case of pancreatitis. She is now on a low fat diet, 1 scrambled egg, Royal Canin GI kibble, and boiled white chicken. Before this, I was giving her a Crananidin pill and Hills CD dry food and chicken. Does anyone know if i can still give her the Crananidin pill? I called the company and they weren’t helpful. Thanks.

    My 9 year old overweight mini poodle has re occuring bladder stones and the vet has recommended Royal Canin Urinary SO moderate calories and NOTHING else. She is also on Baytril 68mg 1.5 tabs once a day. Has anyone had sucess with this? She does not like this dog food. Her cultures came out fine.

    After more xrays, her stones have reduced in size , but there is stll one medium sized one. I would like to avoid surgery, so she is now on a stronger antibiotic, Baytril. Her culture tests came out OK and her PH is good. I hope this works. I am still giving her Crananidin by Nutramax. She is still on the Hill’s perscription diet dry food (she would not eat the wet one). urinary care c/d.

    As I wrote above: After the last one, we tried the Royal Canin prescription canned food, and she hated it. She is not much of a meat eater. So the vet recommended Hill’s prescription diet c/d Urinary Care, dry dog food. I switched to that about 3 months ago. But I just noticed the Hill’s prescription diet c/d Urinary Care, dry dog food is not recommmended on this site. And it didn’t seem to prevent her from getting the stones again. The antibiotics seem to work the best and I think keeping her genitals clean will help. I didn’t know that Royal Canin had a dry food for this problem…I will try to see if it has a better rating than the Hill’s prescription diet c/d Urinary Care, dry dog food.

    My 8 year old mini poodle just got another bladder stone infection. After the last one, we tried the Royal Canin prescription canned food, and she hated it. She is not much of a meat eater. So the vet recommended Hill’s prescription diet c/d Urinary Care, dry dog food. I switched to that about 3 months ago. But now I noticed frequent needs to urinate and blood in her urine. The vet put her on Clavamox 125mg 2X a day for 2 weeks. That has helped on all her other occurences. We give her plenty of water and walk her frequently. But I think we have to clean her genital area more often. I will try that now.

    Where can I get the strips to monitor her PH? Our overweight 8 yr old mini poodle developed urinary stones (had an xray) for the second time in 2 years. She also had blood in her urine and felt the need to urinate often. Our vet prescribed Clavomox for the infection and Royal Canin urinary SO wet do food, which she hates, She also suggested Crananidin which I purchased. After 2 weeks on the antibiotics, her urine seems clear and I think the infection is gone. I don’t know how much longer she will be on this dog food, but she does not like it and it is hard to get her to eat it. I think if I can monitor her PH, perhaps I can prevent her from getting stones again. I don’t know if these stones have dissolved. Am hoping if I monitor the PH and it is below 7 we can prevent them from coming back. And I will give her the Crananidin (from Amazon), though it is expensive. Any other suggestions? I really don’t want to keep her on this dog food forever.
