What causes bladder stones?
Bladder stones can be caused by many factors. One of the main factors is a change in urine pH. Urine pH can be altered by diet and also by urinary tract infections.
My dog has urinary crystals, does that mean he has stones too?
The presence of urinary crystals in dogs and cats does not mean that there are also stones. However, if urinary crystals are detected, it's a good idea to rule out stones with an X-ray or ultrasound. Urinary crystals in dogs and cats will often come together to form stones.
Are bladder stones and urinary crystals life-threatening?
If not properly treated, bladder stones and urinary crystals in dogs and cats can become life-threatening. Both of these can lead to urinary blockage. If you suspect your pet is unable to urinate, it is an emergency that needs to be treated immediately. If left untreated, chronic urinary conditions like stones and crystals can cause severe damage to the kidneys.
Can bladder stones and urinary crystals in dogs and cats go away on their own?
While bladder stones and crystals can be dissolved, this can only occur by changing the properties of the urine. pH is one value that highly influences crystal and stone formation. An appropriate diet and Tripsy can help to create the ideal urinary properties to aid in the treatment of bladder stones in dogs and cats and dissolve urinary crystals.
