Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Typically with calcium oxalate stones, surgery is required. In some cases with very small stones, it may be possible to remove them from the bladder without surgery though this is fairly rare. There also exists the potential to use ultrasonic waves to break up the stones and allow them to be flushed from the body. In any case, a therapeutic diet should be started to keep the dog from producing more stones. There is no inexpensive method of treatment here, but below are some options for financial assistance.
