Struvite Stones, Schanuzers at Risk
(Ch. N.C. U.S.A)
Angel eating healthy now
Angel had stones at 1 yr. old, All Schnauzers are at risk of these.
My Angel went through a horrible operation for struvite stones. I was at a loss of words since I thought feeding her just holistic foods would prevent this. But it did not, so do not be fooled by the ads. Then she was put on the worst food there was: Hill's Science Diet Prescription. With all the meat by products in it. I just cried.
Then I went on the web to find her a food and the food that was good for a Schnauzer. Most websites just wanted you to buy their book. I was really getting discouraged. I finally found a food Royal Canin prescription for Schnauzers with stones. And to prevent stones. I gave all the info to Angels Vet. She reviewed it and called me saying this was the better food for a Schnauzer. Then she said she would even order it for Angel. I was thrilled. But the other food I found in my studies through the months that was good for Schnauzers was the Innova light, it even has a Schnauzer on the bag and the can food.
This breed needs a lot of fish oil. Protein, & vitamin C. Which is not provided in the hard food. With Angel's Prescription food I add some of the Innova hard food, a good sized Teaspoon of the Innova canned food. I boil chicken breast for her. She gets a good pinch of chicken, And frozen green beans cooked, of course. And a few pieces of Beets, which I also found out the Schnauzer breed needs. Not beet pulp. Eggs & Cottage Cheese are good for your Schnauzer also.
Little Angel found out milk is also good for your Schnauzer. She gets just a little for her night cap. She only gets homemade treats now. Very important for Schnauzers no matter what age remember always low fat foods. I hope this article helps All Schnauzer owners.
