Japanese Chin Question

Bladder stone in Japanese Chin


Our Japanese Chin developed bladder stones. She had to have surgery but she seems to be fully recovered. What can we do to prevent this in the future? Thank you for your help

So glad you chin has recovered... I would first analize his diet, water, etc. Does he drink treated water? Is the food he eats extra high in some nutrients or deficient in others? Beware of stores or places that will want to sell you their "special" foods. No need for special foods if the ration you have him on is a balanced, complete food. I would find a nutritionalist to analize the ration who is impartial. Blatter stones are fairly common in dogs but can become fatal if obstruction occurs.
