My 12 yr old Maltese had blood in his urine so we went to the vet. His urinalysis showed blood and high oxalate crystals which apparently is indicative to having bladder stones. X-rays were suggested, which we did. We were told he has 2 fairly big stones. Not so big as to encompass the whole bladder the vet said, however, they are “fairly big” is what he said. Currently he said there is no immediate need to get it taken care of since he is having no other symptoms and in general seems fine. In fact, if we didn’t see the blood, we never would have known something was wrong. Anyway, surgery was strongly suggested due to the size of the stones because the other method of breaking up the stones could result in one getting lodged in the urethra and that can be life threatening. I am currently a student of homeopathy but not far enough along in my studies to know exactly what remedy to use and at what dosage. My question and concern here is homeopathy a viable option in this situation? Or is surgery the best way to go in this situation? In the veterinary world how much success has been found using the remedies? I would rather do that than surgery and I’ve read that calc carb can melt the stones but I’m concerned if the stones get small, lodges and gives him a blockage, we could end up in an emergency situation. I appreciate any and all advice!
