Calcium oxalate stones are one of the most common types of stones that form in dogs.  The purpose of this study is to compare two dry diets marketed for CaOx prevention in dogs.  If you agree to participate in this study, the following will happen: 

  • Blood and urine collection and analysis
  • Abdominal x-rays and ultrasound (potentially under sedation)
  • Recheck visits at 2, 6, 12, 18 and 24 months, which will include blood and urine collection, blood pressure monitoring, x-rays and possibly an ultrasound.
