Customer Question
my dog has calcium oxalate...
my dog has calcium oxalate stones, one as shown on xray. my vet changed her
food to a hypo allergenic one and is giving her albon tab 500 mc/35 and cerenia tab
16mg/#3 to relieve her gas. she said she wants to wait 10 weeks to make sure she
does not develop any more stones, then operate to remove the stone, is this wise to
wait so long? as far as I can tell she has no problem urinating and shows no blood.

I'm afraid that this plan doesn't make much sense to me. Can you tell me specifically which diet Fluffy is eating?
