    Well today is the day Chunky gets neutered and hopefully the vet will remove the Cystine Stones. Hopefully he will get some relief but I hate I have to take him for surgery

    Thanks Christine, I talked to the vet earlier and they said he has a lot of grit in his urinary tract so they are going to try to flush it out and if that doesnt work they will have to remove them surgically. They want me to get him on a lower protein diet so I will start doing some research but I would like to know what percentage they consider low protein.

    I really hope this fixes his problems and he will no longer have this issue or any other

    If I were you I would take the dna test to determine what type of cystinuria your dog has and go from there....https://www.vetgen.com/canine-cystinuria.html

    I just heard back and they were able to flush the stones out and will be sending them off to see what the cause was and how much of them are cystine. He will be staying overnight so I wont see him until tomorrow and they want him on a kidney diet and of course have prescription Science Diet they want to sale me and will feed him that once he is ready to eat again. I know someone said they would recommend the science diet and that it isn't good.

    The vet just called and they want to keep him until 5 tomorrow because he still has blood in his urine and they are giving him IV fluids to flush his urinary tract out.

    Science Diet is crap but until you know what you can feed it is OK for short period of time, but not for long term/life

    I will talk to the vet and see what it is needs to be avoided and look for other food once I get him back with the food. I will probably just look at the percentage of protein and other values the Science Diet has and go from there.
