Canine: Bladder Stones

There are many types of bladder stones each with a tendency to form in a specific breed or species under specific conditions. Here is information on some common forms of stone, with more to come in the future!


Bladder Stones (Oxalate) in Dogs
 Although a urinalysis can provide a clue, the only way to know for sure that a dog's bladder stone is an oxalate stone is to retrieve a stone and have a laboratory analyze it.
Bladder Stones (Struvite) in Dogs
 Some patients with bladder stones show no symptoms of any kind and the stones are discovered incidentally, but there are some symptoms that might promote a search for stones.

Uric Acid Stones and Urate Urolithiasis in Dogs
 Dalmatians are different. Being unable to convert uric acid to allantoin is the main predisposing factor to uric acid stone formation and accounts for why 80% of uric acid bladder stones come from Dalmatians.
