Urine Crystals. I wanted to share this with all of our readers, hoping it may be helpful to others whose dogs may have issues with urine crystals. Q: I recently started my dog, Spider on your PAAWS vitamin supplements. Unfortunately, we’ve discovered that she has calcium crystals in her urine and I have started her on Hill’s U/D Prescription Diet. It states that no additional supplements should be given with this food. Do you think it is safe to continue to give my dog PAAWS or should I wait until her crystals have disappeared?
A: In other cases similar to your dogs, our veterinary hospital has has excellant results keeping these dogs on PAAWS. PAAWS vitamin supplements boost internal immunity, promote healing and wellness. PAAWS does not interfere with the U/D diet, and in our canine patients it helps to promote dissolution of the urinary crystals.
Please don’t hesitate to call me. If you can get a copy of your dogs blood and urine results from your veterinarian and e-mail them to me, I can review them and discuss this with you. Dr. Carol, thank you so much for your quick reply. I am not crazy either about feeding Spider this food as I like to feed her an organic and more natural diet. But she does like the food and I am glad to see that it contains no animal-by-products and a prominent ingredient is potassium citrate which I’ve learned from my research will help dissolve the crystals. Hopefully, we can get her better and back on her usual diet soon.
Thank you again,
Carolyn B. and Spider
