Hi, I am new to this site. We are thinking about expanding our pet family and adopting another dog. I found a dog at a rescue site I was interested in. The site says the dog was operated on for a baseball size kidney stone and is doing well now. I am wondering if anyone knows how likely this is to recur and if it indicates any problem with the dogs kidneys or urinary tract. I have a dog with some medical issues now and although I am happy to handle them if they come up I am not sure I want to adopt another dog who will definitely have problems. The dog is a 6 year old, female, poodle mix. Small, about 15 lbs. Thanks for any advice you can give.
