How Quickly Can Urinary Stones Form in Dogs?

Urinary stones can form in dogs relatively quickly, depending on the type of stone.

Struvite stones, for example, can form in as little as a few days or even hours.

Other types of stones, such as calcium oxalate stones, may take longer to form, typically a few weeks to a few months.

The exact time frame for stone formation depends on the type of stone, the size of the stone, and the individual dog's health and diet.

How often your vet will want to re-examine or run tests like urinalysis and x-rays or ultrasounds depends a lot on how quickly your dog develops stones.
