Piggys always have crystals in their urine. They get rid of all the
extra minerals in their diet through their kidneys whereas humans get
rid of extra minerals by the gall bladder. I would suggest that you give
him 0.5 ml of hydrangea extract orally once/day for a week then 0.2
ml/day until he is back to normal. Then give him 0.1ml hydrangea 2-3
times a week for life. Hydrangea helps the crystals and sludge in his
bladder to be flushed out. So the first time you give it to him you will
see a thick white to cream deposit when he urinates.. You can mix it
with juice if you wish but most piggys take it straight. Make sure he
gets a minimum of 40 ml of water/day. Most of that water will come from
watermelon and leafy greens but also syringe him water. The water he
drinks must be treated by reverse osmosis or distilled. This is the only
water he should drink for life. All my piggys are raised on RO water.
Most tap water is loaded with minerals. I order hydrangea extract from
Vitacost.com Nature's Answer Hydrangea Root 2000mg
1 fluid ounce is $7. Best of health.
I am not a vet just a rodentologist with 30 years experience.
