Q. What can I use to feed my female Chihuahua/sheb unu mix that will dissolve and get rid of bladder stones?

A. It depends which kind of stones she has, you need to ask your vet for the stone analysis report and the advised diet that goes with it.

Usually special prescription urinary food is needed. This does NOT always devolve existing stones but will prevent new ones to form.
