about one moth ago Brandy had to have surgery to remove a large stone and it was Struvite, she is now on Hills canned S/D but can only stay on that for a max of 6 months, prior she was on Nutro chicken and oatmeal, I have to take a urine sample in every month for the next 6 months to make sure there are no more crystals, after the 6 months are up I am really unsure of what to feed her, my vet has had no suggestions really so I am looking here to see if anyone else has had this problem and what do you feed your dog? I am seriously considering switching to a BARF diet, I found some good sites with recipes for dogs prone to stones, any suggestions would be great,
