Hi Everyone,

Our sweet boy Oscar had two bladder stones removed two weeks ago, and we were informed today that they are calcium oxalate stones. The vet gave us some great suggestions (increase water intake by adding water to dry food, more wet food, etc), but I wanted to check here to see what has worked for you. We have been feeding him California Natural Chicken dry food mixed with a small amount of Evangers canned chicken with great results, but are looking for new suggestions that we will limit his calcium intake without breaking the bank. Any information or suggestions so that our little man doesn't have to go through this again would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Jonathan, Maggie, and Oscar

Poor baby!

I need one of our raw feeders to respond here. I thought the problem with calcium was when you don't provide enough phosphate to bind to the excess. In other words, if you feed just bones, that's a problem, but if you feed bones and meat, the phosphate from the meat binds with the calcium from the bones and that's not a problem.

I could be totally wrong, though. That was just my understanding of the issue from researching raw feeding.
