If I remember correctly, it was a BYB and probably would care less.
Poor little Ray.. :cry:

I would maybe get a second opinion because your vet should have solved what was wrong with him by now.
And that's wrong what she said about the stones, a had a cat with Ceribral Hypoplasia (a major birth defect stemming
from a genetic problem with caused him to not develop correctly and have an aweful immune system).

One of his many problems was that he couldn't pee because his body would create stones constantly and he couldn't
pass them. To think of it now, he would pee blood. :eek: Now, changing his diet didn't help because his own body was
creating the crystals. The only way we fixed it was by going to a specialist and getting him.. a sex change.

:lol:

Yes, they spilt open his penis and turned it into a vagina so that the crystals could pass without becoming full stones.
He never had the problem again. We actually got help from the ASPCA because they wanted $7,000 for the surgery
and my vet couldn't do it (or else he would've done it for free).

He was on C/D (if I remember correctly) Hill's Prescription Diet which was to help his crystals, but he created them
at such a rapid rate that the diet didn't help. They had to keep putting tubes up him to him go and syringes in
the bladder to further remove his urine. After a few months of this, they decided to just give him the operation.
It allowed him to still have stones, but be able to pass them.

Your vet should've dewormed him at the first visit.
I would get a second opinion, what has your vet been doing for him?
Any X-rays or ultrasounds?

That vet should be doing more than prescibing meds, he should be finding out what is causing the dog to bleed!
