Dog bladder stones are a common health issue for many canines. In many cases, diet is the main factor that causes this health condition.

Diet may accelerate bladder stone formation in the dog by affecting urine concentration, acidity and mineral load. Many veterinarians will recommend treating this problem through diet modification. Some dog bladder stones, such as magnesium stones, that have already developed can be removed completely through changes in diet.
