Hello all

My Doodle has been diagnosed with Urinary stones and although there are lots of foods available to reduce their formation my dog isn't too keen on these formulated foods and I have to coerce her and very often get the nose in the air and the walk past the bowl - you know how it goes ! :roll:

So ive been trolling the internet looking for homemade recipes to encourage her to partate of a new set of tastes and ive found one which is made up of cottage cheese, egg,brown rice,chicken fat and brewers yeast.

My question is does anyone have any recipes they might recommend so I could give a healthy variety?

Hi Linny

Many thanks for the link its really helpful and ive printed it off , various combinations to try out, if the diets can break down the formation of stones this will avoid the need for surgery which is my ultimate fear , can only but try

Thankyou for the link Bid and ive printed this one too , the more information gathered is to the good.

The Vet is treating the infection separately and then the Stones with the view that Diet is probably integral to controlling the formation and weve had scans and the relevant tests so far.

I like the idea of a Herbalistic approach however I'm not knowledgeable enough to feel confident about using them in conjunction with other Medicines.
