Perspectives: Analysis of 275,000 uroliths


Photo 2: Photograph the compound urocystolith removed from the dog described in Photo 1. The nucleus was composed of calcium oxalate. The shell was composed primarily of magnesium ammonium phosphate.
A concise and practical (something practical can be put into practice) evidence-based discussion about calcium oxalate urolithiasis was sponsored by Hill's Pet Nutrition in July 2003 at the University of California entitled "Managing urolithiasis in cats. Recent updates and practice guidelines." In addition, studies are in progress at the Minnesota Urolith Center to identify and control the causes of calcium oxalate and other types of uroliths. To learn more about our studies and learn how you can participate in them, visit our Web site at http://www.cvm.umn.edu/. Click the link to department and centers to find Minnesota Urolith Center.
