Oxalate stones was created by crackadog
Hi, I have just come in from walking dogs. While out I noticed the terrier passing a slightly reddish wee. I know this herald more stones. My vet who removed some 2 years ago was not keen at that time on ever doing a second op and said she would PTS. Has anyone else had this problem. He is a happy stoic little chap, 9 years old and otherwise fit as a flea. He has been on a very rigid diet of Royal Canin stuff since the first op. He tolerated the op very well and was soon back to normal. I have read of other dogs having the second op without a problem, so of course am leaning to that direction. Any experience would be helpful and I will see the vet this week for a scan to confirm.

Update. Stones are present and also a "mass" both of which are being removed as I write. The mass may well be an inflammatory polyp. but will be sent off to be sure. Seems oxalate stones can be hereditary and come back despite all our efforts of sticking rigidly to the Royal Canin Vet. urinary SO diet.

Hello Crackadog Best wishes for your little Terrier. I should tell you that a much loved deerhound of mine developed bladder stones many years ago now, and the vet ended up, to put it plainly, making him a new wee hole so that any future stones could be easily, painlessly eliminated. This needs to be done by a specialist vet and it is a bit costly, but well worth every penny. From then on our boy had no problems at all and passed away years later from an unrelated cause of heart failure.
Hoping for good results here,
Shelley

Thanks for that Shelley. Quite fascinating and we will certainly suggest that, if there be a next time. Sounds like you have a vet who thinks outside the box.
Murphy-aka the brigadier- came home this morning. The op went well and he is OK although lying very still and quietly of course, but that will change over the next week I am sure. He has tramadol for the pain and that makes them a bit sleepy the vet said. He reacted badly to Rimadyl last time so has a non steroidal this time.
The post girl missed her usual rowdy reception today! Freya(DH) was thrilled to have him home as she spent all yesterday whining and wandering from room to room, presumably trying to find him. The vet thinks the diet has been very helpful as the dogs with oxalate stones are usually back within 12 months. So poor old fellow will be back to the boring diet again now. Thanks for the good wishes Jeorg.
