Diesel's 65 Bladder Stones

Diesel was having great trouble passing urine recently. Vet Natalie Pryor took an xray of his bladder, and soon figured out what the problem was - he had lots of little bladder stones. One of the stones had gone down his urethra (the little tube from his bladder to the outside) and blocked the way. 

We managed to flush the stone back into his bladder, then Matt Ingram operated - and removed a total of 65 bladder stones!! 

Happily Diesel recovered quickly from his surgery - here he is after the operation with nurse Kelly. Well done to all the team involved, great job!
