An unusual case: Calcium oxalate stones, then struvite stones 4 months later

This case illustrates the importance of doing urine analysis for urinary stone cases. Sometimes, some vets may not do it to reduce veterinary costs for the owner. This is not good practice unless the owner rejected this test.

SECOND REPORT - FEB 2012 - Struvite urinary stones despite giving "home-cooked food".
