What to do while waiting for results?

Dietary recommendations

More and more, pet owners are partnering with their veterinary team to determine appropriate diets for their pets.  In some cases, the pet may have multiple medical conditions in addition to urolithiasis.

The Minnesota Urolith Center recommendations which include optimum dietary characteristics for management of urolith patients can be found under mineral-specific treatment recommendations .

Other diets may be appropriate.  However, we have not performed appropriate studies on home-prepared diets or on many commercial diets regarding their efficacy in the treatment or management of urolithiasis.  If a home-prepared diet is being considered, be aware that some individual ingredients may be higher in calcium, oxalate, purine, etc.
