Two stones and a "weird thing"

Not Lucy's picture - but close
After dinner last night, we made our way over to the vet's office where our poor pooch, Lucy, had been receiving ultrasound tests all day and trying to pee in a cup. The culprits - 2 small bladder stones and a "weird thing" (doctor's term) that looked like a mass but actually broke up and floated around as the bladder filled up....which is good, I guess.  We are now trying to break up the stones with a change in diet, to be accompanied by a new course of antibiotics, once the old antibiotics completely leave her system and new lab work can be done. The new urine sample will be drawn with a needle, but I refuse to think about that right now. My immediate concern is keeping the incontinence contained to the kitchen.

Oy vey. Hope Lucy gets better soon and there's no extreme tinkle damage to the house.
