Gallstones, also know as cholelithiasis, is a medical condition resulting from the formation of stones in the gallbladder. Gallstones are typically made up of calcium or other secreted substances. Gallstones occur in dogs and cats but our pets usually have lower cholesterol and calcium stone composition than in humans. Miniature Schnauzers, Poodles, and Shetland Sheepdogs may be predisposed to gallstones.

Dog and cat gallbladder stones are usually formed as a result of poor diet or metabolic dysfunction. When dogs and cats have gall bladder stones, they present urinary problems.


In some pets, there are no apparent symptoms. However, if there is an infection in addition to the gallstones, a dog or cat may display vomiting, abdominal pain, fever, and jaundice.

Conventional Remedies:

Your veterinarian will confirm or rule out diseases of the liver, pancreatitis, inflammation of the bile duct or gallbladder, and a gallbladder distended by an inappropriate accumulation of mucus.

Your vet will perform a complete blood count to look for bacterial infection, obstruction in the bile duct, or other underlying factors that could be causing the symptoms.

X-rays are not usually very effective in looking at the gallbladder, but your veterinarian will probably want to use ultrasound to make an internal visual examination. Ultrasound imaging can detect stones, a thickened gallbladder wall, or an over sized bile tract. This can also be used as a guide for the collection of specimens for culture.

Surgery may be an option in some cases.
