Bladder Stones and Infections in Dogs

The Expert Vet (05-21-2018) #5077: Dogs and bladder stones: Dr. Donna Spector fills you in on everything you need to know. Bladder stones and infections go hand-in-hand. Bladder infections are common in dogs — especially overweight females — and the condition does require antibiotics.
