Hi My name is Meg and I am new to this forum. The problem I have is regarding my cat, Izzy. He is a 3 year old neutered male tabby and has just been diagnosed with FLUTD. The vet has told us that he will need surgery to remove kidney stones......the oxalate variety.

My questions is......does anyone know the percentage of likelihood of recurrence for these type of stones and is there any prediction as to how long this type of surgery will eliminate this condition? I have heard and read that this will likely be a lifetime thing that needs special diet and regular vetrinary visits.

Anyone out there who can help me with any info on this would be greatly appreciated. I am very upset as this surgery seems very expensive but he is like a baby to me and I just don't know of any other options since I do not want to see him suffer or be uncomfortable unnecessarily.

Please help if you can.

Thanks in Advance!

Meg in Florida
