Scooter had been urinating oddly for a few months, and our Vet team diagnosed a severe case of uroliths (bladder stones) by Xray.

There were so many stones, that they were filling her entire bladder, leaving no room for urine at all, hence she had been peeing involuntarily. Poor Scooter!

The uroliths had to be removed surgically by Head Vet Helen, and we are happy to say that within days Scooter was urinating normally again, and has recovered amazingly quickly.

The analysis of the uroliths revealed that they were Struvite stones, which consist of minerals such as magnesium and phosphate, gained from her current diet. The good news is that it is just a case of changing Scooter’s diet to a specialist urinary diet, to ensure that the uroliths never have a chance to form again.

Wow - the white stones are clearly visible in Scooter's Xray, leaving almost no room for any urine in her bladder!
