we were given a fairly aged female for christmas last year and about 3 months ago she started having blood in her urine well at first i thought it was just her period then i realized that it was blood in her poo and it was always real loose. Then it became really loose always and pretty bloody so I finally got paid and went to the vet. They took x-rays and there was 1 very large stone and one smaller one that completly filled her bladder. The vet said he was too tired from all the surgeries he did and she would have too wait till the next day, the first one. He wanted to keep her all night but I took her home and then she got worse throwing up violantly with blood so I called the emergency but it was costing so much already and they wanted to iv etc. I decided to hold her all night no matter what and wait as the cost would be astronomical enough, well glad to say the next day they came out and twinky is great for now, but there is no way I could ever afford that agian and Im scared it might come back. Twinky and I had a miracle money that just happens once in a life time or she would'nt be here and the thought is too much to bare so can anyone tell me if this will happen agian and/or what I can do to help it not happen agian please. Before this I never heard of such a thing in dogs. Please help!!!!!! thank you B.J.
