Bladder stones (with dogs)
« on: August 03, 2006, 01:06:41 AM »
For the second time in two years one of my female dogs has had bladder stones. The operation is like $600 (ouch!!!).
They removed a whole bag full of white rock-like stones.
When this happened the first time, in 2004, I was told to put her on special dog food Hills C/D. Its like $2 a can. Well with all the dogs I have, feeding just one a special food was just too hard to do. So I just changed the dog food brand to science diet for all the kids, but not the C/D. Well two years later the stones are back. Another $600 operation and another bag of huge stones, 26 in all. Many were golf ball size, like before.
This time I went to a different vet. He too said to get the Hills C/D dog food, but then said "or just give her a spoon of tomato juice each day". He said tomato juice keeps the stones (her type of stones) from forming.

Just one of those little vet secrets that most vets wont tell you. They want you to buy the costly special dog food, that you can only get from a vet, not a store. Hummmm... tomato juice.
(Just a pass-on to dog owners)
