Did you know that our pets suffer from kidney and bladder stones similar to those found in humans? This week, Dr. Alex Gallagher, a small animal medicine specialist, will discuss how to spot signs of urinary stones and when your pet should be seen immediately by a veterinarian. Dr. Gallagher will also discuss how these stones are diagnosed and ways in which these can be managed, including a new minimally invasive procedure known as laser lithotripsy.
