I'm a retired pharmacist (university teaching and hospital pharmacy). Our mini schnauzer (Cosmo) is our third pet of that breed and definitely a member of our family.
​Before discussing Cosmo's diet, let me say that he is doing well. He turned 11 in November 2019 and as of August had no more bladder stones. His hyperlipidemia seems to be under control and the soft stool problem he had for most of 2018 has also abated through the use of daily doses of Tylosin and Metamucil.I do think that the Pet Diet Designer so...
As mentioned in previous posts, Cosmo requires a special diet due to his propensity to form calcium oxalate bladder stones. In addition, he developed hyperlipidemia last year which necessitated a low-fat diet. We started his low-oxalate, low-fat diet early in 2018 and two ingredients which were good sources of fiber (banana chips and pita chip...

He has had two bladder surgeries to remove them since November 2014, and now another surgery seems inevitable. His latest crop of stones was found with an x-ray by our vet in late July, but we decided to put off the surgery until they create a problem (e.g...

The diet consisted of a combination of Royal Canin Urinary SO (moderate calorie) and a low oxalate homemade diet. Then in April 2016 Cosmo's stones returned and were a...
This is a description of our dog's (Cosmo, a male miniature schnauzer) urinary stone problem.... how the problem developed; what was done to remove the stones; and what we are doing to prevent their return. Symptoms: Cosmo was about 5.5 years old when our grandson noticed that his urine was red while walking him. He didn't seem to be in any di...
