Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
No antibiotics and he has been eating URINARY SO by Royal Canin plus some home made food.
They did check the stone and were no bacteria. they said they removed all the stones, but not sure if they took another x-ray. both legs surgery last Nov. but there is another problem on his left leg, they want to do surgery same time one leg and remove bladder stone.
That is why I'm really worry that if it's okay to do that.
Thank you! knee cap surgery has been done for both leg, but this time some tissue connect to both knee bone is broken(?) And he is sleeping all the time. may be because of the bladder pain. Thank you surgery is scheduled on Oct 16th. what do I have to ask them about surgery?
I personally would do the bladder surgery and knee surgery separately, but the only benefit to doing them at the same time, is just one anesthetic procedure. It sounds like the cranial cruciate ligament is torn inside the knee, and since it's a joint surgery, I would recommend doing just one surgery at a time, in order to reduce the chance of post-operative infection/complications. Otherwise, I'm not sure of any specific questions to ask, other than making sure they send the bladder stones off for analysis to find out exactly what the stones are made of (which can help with long-term treatment/prevention), and to make sure X-rays of the bladder are taken after surgery to ensure that all of the stones are removed. Let me know if I can help further. Dr. Dave
