    Hi! Just wanted to give an update....Barkley had his surgery last week and everything went well. The vet just called with the results of the stone analysis and they are cystine stones He said that Barkley needs to be on the Science Hills UD food now to prevent them from coming back. He wants me to switch him to that and then come back in a couple weeks so he can test his urine.

    I know that Science Hills is not a great brand of food at all and I definitely do not want to be feeding him crappy food. I will have to check out the group you mentioned above and see if they have any recommendations on feeding to prevent the stones from coming back other than the Science Hills.

    Thanks!

    Happy to hear all went well with the surgery.... Hills ids OK for short term, but you are right in researching and getting advice for a better food for him. BEST of luck

    I am no help. My sister had a collie, she was a bit older (8 years) and she kept getting these. Eventually got the surgery but they kept coming back. I hope if you get it done its not like what she went through. I would ask the vet if they would come back after the surgery or not and how to prevent it.

    i should probably read the comments before posting huh?! hehe well im glad the surgery went well and you already covered the grounds opn helping to prevent them!! much luck and SO HAPPY for a recovery!!

    SAME THING WITH MY BABY!!! Had him on that crap food for a long time and then I swapped to Castor and Pollux from PetsMart and I've never had any issues... My vet said it's ok as long as he's going potty normally.

    Great that the surgery went well! Cystine stones can be tricky, but you can also find a group for Canine cystinuria in yahoo and they have great suggestions on other type of feeding.
