Does any one have problem with Kidney Stones in their Japanese Chin dogs? I am told this is common in this breed, I have a puppy that has had to have them removed twice now.

No, we have had many Japanese Chins and have never ever had any problems with kidney stones. The first thing that I'd check is his diet. Some of the most expensive foods sometimes aren't necessarily better for your dog. I think I'd find out what can cause stones and then talk to a nutritionist about it. His diet may be partially responsible if he's getting too much of something.

YES our Japanese chin recently passed away at 5 years old and lived with chronic kidney stone problems even on a vet prescribed diet. This is very common in this breed I have two other chins from different breeders one has had bladder stone issues as well. Very difficult to lose them they are the best dogs

We had to put down our baby,Gizmo yesterday. She was the best. She was born with a heart murmur. # yrs ago diagnosed with enlarged heart. Last yr. kidney stones. Could not do surgery because of the heart. Loved her sooo much,but loits of health problems. My husband wants to get another Japanese Chin, but Im afraid to.

My Japanese Chin just had one removed. She is 4 yrs old; I had no idea this was common for them. I'm changing her diet to see it that helps.
