Veterinarians define horse bladder stones as a concretion of minerals.
Calcium comprises most horse bladder stones.
The location of the stone in the body dictates the classification of the stone.
“Cysto” means “bladder”. Therefore, cystoliths are bladder stones.
Nephroliths are kidney stones.
Ureteroliths and urethroliths are in the ureter and urethra, respectively.
Stones in horses potentially cause urinary issues, which lead to urinary tract infections or urinary flow obstructions.
If left untreated, stones can eventually lead to kidney failure and death.
Luckily, Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) has an herbal blend to eliminate the stones mentioned above!

Crystal Stone Formula: Eastern Medicine Applications
Eastern Medicine treats a disease’s root cause(s) rather than symptoms.
Accordingly, TCVM veterinarians use a different evaluation process than Western veterinarians.
