552. Follow up on pug with urinary stones operated twice - SD diet, no choice

At 7pm, the young lady working in the clinic who keeps only pugs as pets came for her S/D canned diet. "My pug has been taking for over 6 months, she said. "No choice. She already had two bladder operations to remove stones, the last one was under you.

"When I give home-cooked food and meat, the urine becomes cloudy and discoloured. When I give S/D, the urine colour is clear."

The pug is in excellent health.

ADVICE
1. To collect urine sample for analysis of struvite crystals and change to C/D. She will bring the pug downstairs and catch his urine. She has her own urine collection bottle.
