|I just spent two days in an emergency vet hospital and doggie ICU cuz I had stones in my bladder, and that turned into a really yucky infection...and I don't want that to happen ever again ... not to me, and not to my Cindy...I don't think she has slept for two days.
I am home now, doing well...but the vet says I have to change my diet, he prescribed Royal Canin "SO" diet and Cindy said she read the ingredients and she hates it already...
ROYAL CANIN Veterinary Diet® canine URINARY SO® 14 dry
Rice, ground corn, chicken fat, chicken meal, natural flavors, corn gluten
meal, dried egg product, salt, powdered cellulose, potassium chloride, fish oil,
monocalcium phosphate, calcium carbonate, calcium sulfate, taurine, choline
chloride, Vitamins [DL-alpha tocopherol acetate (source of vitamin E), biotin,
D-calcium pantothenate, pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), vitamin A acetate,
niacin supplement, thiamine mononitrate (vitamin B1), riboflavin supplement
(vitamin B2), folic acid, vitamin B12 supplement, vitamin D3 supplement],
marigold extract (Tagetes erecta L.), Trace Minerals [zinc oxide, ferrous sulfate,
zinc proteinate, manganese proteinate, copper sulfate, manganous oxide, copper
proteinate, calcium iodate, sodium selenite], rosemary extract, preserved with
natural mixed tocopherols and citric acid.
CORN? The second ingredient is corn? And when she asked the vet if corn was a significant ingredient for the prevention of bladder stones he said no, the corn was just filler...
We know that this diet is well recommended but Cindy is thinking she wants to cook for me instead but we need a recipe specifically for dogs with urinary stone issues. We welcome advice and recommendations. We haven't posted in this forum before so if there are already threads please let us know.
