Types of Kidney Stones in Dogs
If the kidney stone contains calcium and oxalic acid, it is called a calcium oxalate nephrolith. These types of kidney stones are more predominant in Lhasa Apsos, Miniature Poodles, and Yorkshire Terriers.
If the kidney stone contains uric acid, they are called urate nephroliths, and are more predominant in Dalmatians, English Bulldogs, and Yorkshire Terriers.

Dog Breeds Susceptible to Kidney Stones
All dogs are prone to kidney stones, but some breeds tend to be at greater risk. For example, kidney stones containing calcium and oxalic acid (known as calcium oxalate nephroliths) are more likely to be found in Lhasa Apsos, Yorkshire terriers, and Miniature poodles. Kidney stones containing uric acid (known as urate nephroliths) typically affect Dalmatians, Yorkshire Terriers, and English Bulldogs.
Changing your dog’s diet may help prevent kidney stones, but it is vital to speak with your vet before making any dietary changes for your dog. At NHV our herbal remedies for kidney stones in dogs are plant-based and vet-formulated to help support your dog’s health and well-being.
