DotWhen Dot failed to recover from suspected cystitis causing her to suffer difficulty in urinating further investigations were instigated.
Ultrasound images of her bladder revealed a large bladder stone and analysis of her urine led us to believe this was composed of a substance called struvite. As her symptoms were not so severe as to require surgical removal of the stone she was put on a diet aimed at dissolving the stone.

The remarkable effect that dietary change can have on certain bladder stones was clearly seen in the before and after ultrasound images we took.  Six months after diagnosis her bladder was totally empty!
