Thank you Andrea so much. You know you are a very special person in my life and I will never be able to repay the way you ALL have made me feel.

Thank you Elaine, he is definately my little star. And I can not believe how excited I got when he tried to pee on my foot. I am wandering if it was his way of letting me know he is feeling better.

Then when I was in the rest room I came back and he was out of his bed again. This time he had made it outside to go potty. YIPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I just stood there for a bit watching him and I could tell he did not like me "spying" on him, so I walked next door. When I came back he was laying on the top step sun bathing. I went to pick him up to bring him back inside and he jumped and ran from me in the door and right back to the foot stool.

Then I reached down to pet him and he looked up at me like "what do you think you are doing woman" and jumped down.

I am telling you all of this because this is Ezekiel when he is well. He has a personality like no other I have ever seen. He is independent and knows it. I am so happy to see my baby getting back to himself. And yes even proud that he tried to pee on my foot. I was like "way to go little man". The things we do for the love of our babies.

I am on cloud now right now as I am sure all of you can tell. I have worried about him not getting back to himself ever since he came home. And today is just the beginning. I am seriously thinking about trying to change his diet slowly because I KNOW that the food he is on now was causing the stones.

Miko's Mom I dont know your name and sure wish I did. Do you think it is a good idea to try something new right now? If so maybe I can try what you are feeding until we get the results back. What do you think? I want to do what is best for my little man. Thank you again for all of the wonderful advise. I want you to know that knowing that Miko went through the same thing really gave me strength last week. I hope to one day be able to pay it forward what you and Miko have done for me and Ezekiel.


OK Now I am going to get a little mushy but it is how I feel and I need to share it with all of you..............

I LOVE YOU ALL!! I know for a fact that I would still be a basket case if I would not have had my friends to turn to during this time. You are all so important in my life. And I treasure each and every one of you like you would never imagine. Thank You from the bottom of my heart. I was really nice to log in when I would be a basket case and see new post with prayers and good thoughts for my baby. I can not say thank you enough, but I am going to say it one more time...

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!
You are so sweet! It's obvious how much you love little Ezekiel. That's what it's all about...Helping out whenever we can You help people all the time!! I've seen you help people through the the whelping process and all kinds of stuff.
When I went through all of this with Miko, my husband and I were alone in all of it, and I know we would have been so much more at ease if we knew others that had gone through it.
Noone had ever heard of the procedure that our vet was recommending, but we went with it because we knew Miko couldn't live a good life without it. I'm so happy we did it, and throughout the years we've been able to do a lot of research and try different things and now know what to do.
I never thought we would get him to the point where he didn't have stones/crystals, but it has been so long now!! It really is amazing and I pray that Ezekiel can be kept stone free too!
As far as the food goes, what do you feed him currently?
Did the vet tell you what pH of his urine was?
The stone analysis is so important to know what kind of food to feed, but at least knowing the pH in the meantime will help decide whether you need to incorporate foods that are alkaline or acidic. You can also buy pH test strips from solidgoldhealth.com or even from your pharmacy.
If his urine is alkaline, he may benefit from something like Berry Balance.
If his urine is acidic, then we need to find out if he has ammonium urate or calcium oxalate. But since we don't know yet, if you decide to change his food we'll have to make sure to keep his food low oxalate and lower purine just in case.
The only thing that I can recommend 100% until you get those results back is adding equal parts water to the dry food. High moisture is the key when crystals/stones are involved.
