I have a 5 year old Bichon, her name is Lilly, she has crystals in her urine and is allergic to chicken, any ideas? It is hard to find food, she has been eating Nutro venison with chickpeas for her skin and it has cleared up her hot spot problems, so we don't really want to change it... Help thanks

Dear Shelly,

You should ask your veterinarian what type of crystals she has and if you need to acidify the urine or make it more alkaline to keep the crystals from precipitating out. Is your dog allergic to fish? If not you might try fish and sweet potato. After being on the new food for a few days check the pH of the urine to find out if you need to give something to adjust the pH to a better value.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
