1190. Follow up on Schnauzer with kidney & bladder stones

Wed Nov 21, 2012

The Schnauzer came back on Saturday as she had been vomiting the past 2 days. Blood tests revealed a high white cell count and urine test showed amorphous urates 2+ , blood, and white cells. The dog was on IV drip and antibiotics on day 1. She did not vomit. Ate food and vomited again yesterday.

It is possible that the kidney stones had caused this urinary tract infection. What is the solution? Cut out the stones from the kidney? Presently, a lot of pain in the abdomen. Bacterial infection is treated first and let the dog stabilise. X-rays will be needed.
