Yes,  Pam that to much calcium...  Cant imagine you giving Ben this stuff... 
High-oxalate foods to limit, if you eat them, are:
Bran flakes.
Potato chips.
French fries.
Nuts and nut butters.

 Vet said the stone Ben had was not common in Bichon. Common in Damations! Now I know Bengy is big but not that big and not spotted lol. I think it was an oxalate stone but it is a long time ago.

Hi Pam, and thank you for replying.  So good to hear your baby has been good on that food.  So far we are still waiting for the report to come back to know what caused my baby's stone, but the dr said to get her and my other baby off filtered water, and onto distilled water.  He said he has seen other's recently with the same problem and I guess he is blaming our water.  So of course, the water is changed already.  And no vegetables?  Wow.. 
Right now I pay 20 dollars for 12 lbs of their food. I wonder how much more Hill's food will cost.

 Hi, apologies Mary, I have just seen this. I do hope the little one is doing ok. Bengy had a large bladder stone removed years ago. He was in real distress before due to pain weeing poor soul, or rather trying to. Recovery was excellent. He has been on Hills special food ever since (at considerable cost) but we are not as good as we should be ensuring he has nothing else. The vet advised not even vegetables! Nothing but the Hills. He is 14 now and touch wood, has been fine.

Hi Sandie.  Yes I have been reading some old old posts and even emailed one (dont know if I will hear back) but I talked to the Vet and told him my concerns so he said if she is doing well I can take her home.  He called me now saying her blood work all came back good so he was ready to sedate her, and it's noonish here, so hope by this evening I can go get her. 
Thank you for replying.  I hope you and yours are well.

Just seeing this.  Mary, I am sorry you and your pup have to deal with this.

I think there may be some older posts in the Health section about this surgery.

I agree:  if there is no human at the vet hospital overnight, then there is NO reason for the dog to remain there.  Bring her home.  You can take her back first thing in the morning if they need to check anything.

Thanks Alison for the thought.
She has her eye but is blind, and the hole in the pupil has healed.  My poor baby.   
Now we're dealing with other problems..  bladder stone surgery.
I hope you and your baby are well
