    The breeder did respond and said he had never heard of bulldogs having stones of any kind.

    Chunky is doing better but I can still tell he has trouble peeing. Hopefully we will get it all worked out soon

    I honestly don't know if this is considered an hereditary issue... I'm so sorry, I hope your boy has some relief soon...

    Breeds Serviced

    • Australian Cattle Dog
    • Australian Labradoodle
    • Bulldog
    • English Bulldog
    • English Mastiff
    • French Bulldog
    • Labradoodle
    • Labrador Retriever




    Cystinuria

    Cystinuria in dogs is indicated by the presence of cystine stones in the kidney, bladder or ureter. Failure by the kidneys to reabsorb amino acids results in the formation of cystine crystals and sometimes stones in the urine which can lead to blockage of the urethra. While the disease is not genetically sex-linked, it is diagnosed in male dogs more frequently than females due to anatomical differences. We offer a tests based on the research done at the University of Pennsylvania which identified mutations responsible for cystinuria in several breeds.
    Type I Cystinuria is an autosomal recessive disease thus an animal affected with the disease has inherited one copy of the mutation from each parent. Inheriting only one copy from either parent yields carrier status. The disease is not present but the animal must be bred carefully to prevent creating affected offspring.


    Clear The disease in not present in your dog. When used for breeding, a Clear dog will not pass on the disease gene.
    Carrier One copy of the disease gene is present in your dog, but it will not exhibit disease symptoms. Carriers will not have related medical problems, but will pass on the disease gene 50% of the time.
    Affected This finding indicates that two copies of the disease gene are present in the dog. Unfortunately, the dog will be medically affected by the disease.

    Breeds with recessive (Type I) Cystinuria

    • Newfoundland and Landseer
    • Labrador Retriever


    Type II Cystinuria is an autosomal dominant disease which means there are no carriers. An animal will either test as clear, heterozygous affected (one copy), or homozygous affected (two copies). Homozgous affected animals tend to show symptoms earlier in life than those with a single copy of the mutation.
    Breeds with dominant (Type II) Cystinuria

    • Australian Cattle Dog
    • Miniature Pinscher


    Type III Cystinuria was formerly known as non-Type I Cystinuria. It is found in Mastiffs and related breeds. This disease is somewhat more complicated than the other types. It seems to only be expressed in intact, adult males. There is no causative mutation identified, but there is a linked marker available that identifies risk alleles in most lines.
    Breeds with Type III Cystinuria

    • Bulldog
    • English Bulldog
    • English Mastiff
    • French Bulldog

    My bully, Barkley, had cystine stones removed about 2.5 years ago. We found he had them a few weeks after he was neutered unfortunately so the poor guy had to have 2 surgeries in a month! After lots of research I found that in mastiff breeds they are testosterone dependent and should not come back after being neutered. Barkley has not had any problems since having them removed 2.5 years ago and I don't feed him a special diet or anything like that!

    Chunky seems to be doing better and has another weeks worth of amoxicillin so hopefully he will continue to improve. Then onto Project Neuter

    Glad to hear he's doing better! From what I understand about cystine stones is that they don't go away on their own, they have to be removed. Are you going to have them removed too when you get him neutered?

    They will do an x-ray when he goes back to the vet and that will probably be after he finishes this round of anti bionics. The neuter and removal of stones could possibly be the same day if thats what the vet wants to do.

    Gotcha. I'm sure they'll just take care of everything at once so he doesn't have 2 surgeries! Our Barkley had his neuter/soft palate surgery and not even a month later is when we found out he had the stones! The vet felt so bad about him having to have a 2nd surgery so soon and gave us a big discount when he did the one to remove the stones. Good luck and keep us updated!

    Chunky goes to the vet friday for neuter and x-ray. Hopefully he its rid of the stone before we arrive so he won't need two surgeries.
