Preventing Canine Bladder Stones

January 12, 2010

A dog sitting in front of a bowl of water.If your dog or cat has blood in its urine or pain during urination or frequent urination, go to the vet immediately. If your pet gets bladder stones, it may require surgery. Some pets get this from their diet, others are susceptible by breed.


Always be sure your pet has access to water and frequent chances to urinate.

Does anybody have a recipe for homemade dog food for reoccurring bladder stones. I would also love to know about treats.

I had a Springer which had crystals. Sorry but I'm French so I don't know if it is the same thing. I had brought him to the vet 3 times in less than a year and it was costing me $100.00 every time. The last time the vet told me that he had to make some tests on my dog and it would cost me around $300.00, that was many years ago.


Around 10 years ago, I didn't have any money to pay for the tests and the vet had told me that he wasn't sure he could cure him. At the time I was selling Noni Juice and it was good for a lot of health problems. I took a chance and put my dog on it, which at the time could not urinate and was in pain. It was that or I had to euthanize him. I gave him one once in the morning and one at night. After 2 days my dog was urinating. I kept him on it for at least 4 months and for 2 months I was giving him 1 once per day. It gives the pets energy you wouldn't believe. I had my dog for another 4 years. When he died he was 14 years old and never had any problems with crystals again. That juice is miraculous. I have save so many animals with it that I believe more in that juice than medication.


Even if your pet is on medication you can give it to him. In Canada, because I still use it, it is $60.00 a bottle. You have a different brand. Costco sells its bottle at $18.00. I would not drink it. But I started my ferret a couple of weeks ago on it. He was sleeping all the time and he was losing his hair on the tail and back legs. He had problem walking with his hind legs. I started him on Noni juice and after one week he was playing with the other ferrets and his fur was much softer. After a visit to the vet we found out that he had adrenal gland tumor. He got a shot of one (I can't remember the name of the medication) a month ago and this week he is going to have his second. If everything works well with this one next month he will get an implant which will last for a year.


I am still giving him Noni juice every day. Buddy is 6 1/2 years old. I know he is considered old, but if I can give him another year I will. He is responding very well to the medication right now. I hope that the shots he'll get this week will work well. But I am sure that the Noni juice is helping. The Noni juice I am taking morning and night on the bottle you can see a man with a horn. Here I buy it from a private who sells it. You cannot buy in a store. I think it is much stronger that the one at Costco. This is the one which my dog was on. You can go and have a look on the internet. It is called Morinda Noni Juice. You will see the bottle I am talking about. Hope this will help you.

P.S. I even saved my cat which had depression problems. She was not eating and had lost a lot of weight. When I brought her to the vet, she told me that my cat was in a depression and that she had to eat. If a cat does not eat for 3 days there is a big chance that she will die. I tried the food the vet gave me. She would not eat. When she started to vomit I knew she was going to die. The color of her skin was yellow, orange. I started her on Noni juice and tuna that we buy for ourselves in a can.


She was my son's cat. He was around 19 years old at the time and the cat is in love with him. He didn't go out with his friends and stayed home with her because the vet said that she needed people that she cared around her all the time. Well believe it or not she started eating and I was talking with the vet on the phone all the time. Coquine, the cat, is still alive and with us today and is still very much in love with my son. I have never seen this in my life. She follows him everywhere and when he goes to work she waits for him by the door. Sylvie

Like castorwind mentioned, put your dog on a good quality of food. It is important.

If the bladder stones keep coming back I am positive that it could be something in the food that does it. I remember I switch my dog's food.


At the time he was on Ol Roy which you buy at Walmart. I don't remember on which brand I put him on.

I have an 8 year old Pekingese that had oxalate stones removed just a couple of weeks ago. He also had them about 4 years ago. Do you have any suggestions for preventing the stones?
