Dog with renal & bladder calculi and enlarging prostateI am an adopted (formerly abandoned) mixed male, non-spayed Indian/German Spitz of about 6 yrs in age having calculi in both kidneys and bladder resulting in urinary tract infection, and weak & trembling hind legs that made me stand on all fours to urinate. As per abdominal x-ray in Feb 2013, the right kidney held a staghorn calculus while that in the bladder was of 1.4 cm. I was on Himalayas Nefrotech DS two tabs a day for over one year, but it did not help much. My companion found me a homeopathic vet lady who prescribed five Q tinctures 15 drops of each (initially starting from 5 drops each) to be taken three times a day. The lady homeopath was also of the opinion that as I was suffering from a traumatic shock after a visit to a sob veterinary surgeon who put me into screaming tearing pain despite prior administration of sedative while taking an abdominal x-ray by lying on my back with my weak & painful hind legs made parallel to the table towards which she had given me a tasteless mix 5 drops of which was to be taken twice a day which would also boost my appetite. For the fact this postural x-ray caused some hematuria licking of which caused blood vomit as a result of which I was on drip for 5 days. My family was furious with this sob vet as they had taken me for an ultrasound after prior appointment for the same which would have revealed all sizes of stones not just large ones as with x-ray. The five tinctures are Bergaris Vulgaris (for renal & bladder calculi and UTI), Hydrangea (for renal & bladder calculi and enlarging prostate), Ocinum Canum (for abdominal/groin pain), Pareira Brava (for straining to urinate on all fours with pain in penis and thighs) and Galium Aparine (for renal & bladder calculi and diuretic). A Conium 200c 5 drops to be given mixed in the tasteless mix only when I am not able to urinate. Taking five tinctures together mixed in 40 mL of water via needless syringes was no less of a traumatic shock for me that the lady homeopathy after 15 days agreed to give Vulgaris plus any one of the other four tinctures each being alternated every 15 days. Experts at this forum please advice.
I am drinking and urinating a lot and, to the dismay of my companion family, I have converted the inside of our home into a canine urinal because of urinal incontinence. Because of the tasteless mix or otherwise my appetite has no limit. I have curd three times a day plain/mixed with chapatti/mixed with boiled potatoes + sliced tomatoes. Having taken a distaste for my earlier favorites Paneer & milk, my family is giving me filler in the form of Pedigree Chicken & Milk as the size of kibbles are easy to munch and I really love compared to the earlier distasteful prescription diets of Farmina/Hills/Royal Canin, but they are concerned that protein is high at 24% for a calculi inflicted canine. My daily stool is sometimes hard but otherwise normal, not loose. I am also provided as supplements 5 mL each of Petcares Proviboost (essential amino acids and multivitamins including folic acid) and Advance (Omega-3 + Omega 6). I am given Drontal Plus crushed and mixed in curd one tab every month or two depending on my likeness for pica or other canine pooh/pee at which time they also add 5 mL of Himalayas HimCal for about a week.
It may be noted the blood tests of February 2013 showed: creatinine/serum urea/serum uric acid of 1.86/37/2.31 mg/dl respectively. Serum sodium & potassium of 141 & 3.80 mMol/L, serum calcium and phosphorous at 8.57 & 2.56 mg/dl. Hemoglobin 14.8 g/dl, TLC 4400 Cu/mm, PCV 44 cc%, platelets 232,000/ cu mm, and RBC 5.68 mill/cu/mm. Urine color light yellow, urine pH was 6.0 with SG of 1.020 with trace albumin, pus and epithelial cells. No blood, sugar or ketones.
