Hills Science Diet u/d. Surgical removal is the treatment of choice for Urethral stones that cause obstruction and also for bladder stones that fail to respond to diet or medications.
A dog with an obstructed bladder is actually uncomfortable or in distress. Males and females will stand splay-legged stance while attempting to void. Other signs to look for are:
Dribbles of urine
Weak stream of urine
If a partial obstruction is left untreated and becomes a complete obstruction, the dog will be unable to urinate at this point. This becomes an acute emergency, and is very important that you bring your dog into the office to be seen.
If you have any questions, or think that your dog could be suffering from stones, please contact our office at 505-869-2627 and we will be glad to help you
