Which uroliths are most common in dogs and cats?
“In dogs, as the incidence of struvite uroliths has gradually decreased, the incidence of canine calcium oxalate uroliths has steadily increased, surpassing struvite in frequency of occurrence. The incidence of struvite and calcium oxalate uroliths in cats has followed a similar course except for the last few years, which have seen a decline in the incidence of calcium oxalate and an increase in struvite uroliths.”
