Help, i have a friend who has a lab, this poor dog has been crying from what seems to be stomach cramps, she took him to the vet, and vet told her he has cystine stones, vet recommended that the dog be on flagel indefinitely (which i thought was inappropriate) has anyone come across a similar situation. After my research, i realized that high protien diets ignites crystalization which will eventually form into stones and also dehydration. Thus far, the recommendation i gave her was to have the dog be put on a low protein diet and make sure he has plenty of water by his side. Hopefully this will limit the crystalization from forming, but not sure what to do about the existing stones since they need to be dissolved / removed. Any ideas?
