Pet of the Month for November is Pepper!

November 20, 2017Caroline Le BretonLatest0

    

Pepper came into see us when her owner noticed some blood in her litter tray. Despite treatment, the problem didn’t resolve, so we carried out urinalysis and ultrasound which revealed that Pepper had multiple stones, the largest being 8mm in diameter! These stones had to be surgically removed via a cystotomy (opening up of the bladder).
Pepper’s surgery was a success, so she was sent home the same day to recover with her family. The stones were sent off to a special laboratory in the USA for identification. They turned out to be Calcium Oxalate stones, which means that Pepper will have to stay on a urinary prescription diet in the future to prevent the stones from forming again.
