Unhappy Bladder Stones

Hey everyone! I'm new to the forum and recently just bought a 16 year old quarter horse.

I had noticed that he seemed to be trying to pee quite a bit. Sometimes he was successful and sometimes he was not. So I had two vets out, first one did nothing and tried to tell me it was just a bladder infection. Second vet actually felt around his bladder and felt a giant bladder stone about the size of a tennis ball! So needless to say he is having surgery to have this giant stone removed.

I guess I'm just wondering if anyone has had this issue with their horse, and what can I expect after surgery, recovery time, new feeding regime, etc.

Anyone who has been through this before and can give me information, I would greatly appreciate knowing what to expect in the next few months.

Lucky horse that he found his way into your life & you are treating him.
Your vets could give you the best answers but I'm sure he'll be fine & after they remove the stone/s they will see what it is made of & most likely give you feeding instructions so they don't reoccur.
