Hecktiek week for Trompie.



Some weeks ago I noticed blood in Trompie’s urine. The Vet gave some antibiotics which did not work. Last week Trompie showed that he felt uncomfortable. He kept on licking and looking back at his bum. I made an appointment for Tuesday to take X-rays.

The result was: He had a whole bunch of bladder stones. Trompie stayed for the night because the doctor wanted to operate and take the stones out.

Everything went well. I picked him up this morning. He is still feeling dizzy and sleepy but I’m glad it’s done.

Bladder stones

Bladder stones are a collection of minerals and other materials. Most bladder stones in dogs are made from struvite, calcium oxalate, urate, or cystine crystals. … This is because they are formulated to make the dog produce more acidic urine than they would otherwise in order to break down the stone.
