40. Follow up on a 15-year-old cat that had bladder stone removed

May 12, 2016

The 15-year-old cat had calcium oxalate stone in the bladder (blog written) on 11.1.2016 according to the Minesota Urolith Centre, USA. According to NUH Department of Laboratory Medicine, the stone has chemical composition of calcium oxalate and magnesium phosphate too.

The cat is OK now. I did advise canned food, but the cat now eats dry. I did advise urine test every 3 months but very rarely do Singaporean owners comply. 6-monthly X-rays for stones is advised but never complied with. 

Today I sms the owner regarding the cat and type of food eaten. She replied:

"She is not really eating much wet food lately. Mostly dry kibbles."
