Dr. Matt at Vet Ranch Rescue has done it again. This homeless, middle-aged pup looked just fine on the outside, but was going to the bathroom a little too often. Just as a precaution, the veterinarian took some x-rays, and upon further inspection, it was clear that something was very, very wrong.
Is that a bar of soap?
No, it’s a bladder stone that’s been forming most likely for years.
A bladder stone is an accumulation of chemicals produced by the body.
It was the biggest stone Dr. Matt has ever seen, but the surgery was successful!
Nice work, Doc!
