Teddy Bear has been taking gluclosamine / MSM supplements since his limping episode began about 10 weeks ago. Every brand of this type of supplement warns about increased risk of urinary tract stones.

Is this something I should worry about? I hate to stop the supplements because they *might* be helping. Hard to tell for certain.

We feed him Eukanuba, and I contacted them about this question. They said that their foods are designed to hit the correct urine Ph level (that's all the info they could give me).

Anyone here have their Corgis on a joint supplement, and had a bladder stone incident as a result?
