Medical treatment includes a urinary acidifier to dissolve the stones and crystals, anti-inflammatories for pain and to reduce swelling in the urinary tract, dietary modification, and antibiotics if there is an indication of urinary tract infection. For part 3 see Title , Vol. 4. In 2 experiments the relation between pH and buffering capacity of the ash of feeds and the pH of urine and the incidence of silica urolithiasis were studied. In the first experiment the buffering capacity of 1 g ash in 50 ml distilled water was measured. A total of 51 feeds of plant origin were studied; 21 of those and 4 chemical compounds were given to.
Ammonium chloride has been shown to help lessen the likelihood of urinary calculi in male goats; calcium to phosphorus ratio helps deter urinary calculi in male goats; Salt to encourage water consumption which may help deter urinary calculi; Copper to help build a healthy immune response and to facilitate hoof health. Gross hematuria usually is associated with pyelonephritis, urinary calculi, urolithiasis, or cystitis in dairy cattle. Cattle affected with malignant catarrhal fever (MCF) often have hematuria caused by renal vasculitis or hemorrhage from the bladder due to hemorrhagic cystitis.
Urinary calculi are solid particles in the urinary system. They may cause pain, nausea, vomiting, hematuria, and, possibly, chills and fever due to secondary infection. Diagnosis is based on urinalysis and radiologic imaging, usually noncontrast helical CT. Treatment is with analgesics, antibiotics Missing: beef cattle.

Calculi are hard aggregations of mineral salts and tissue cells that form either in the kidney or the bladder. They may produce a mechanical irritation and a chronic bladder inflammation.
Introduction Urolithiasis (urinary calculi, water belly) is a disease of intact and castrated male ruminants (sheep, cattle, and goats) and pigs. Uroliths (literally, urinary stones) are solid aggregates of minerals that precipitate out of the fluid phase of urine to form one or more pebble-like stones in the urinary tract.
In cattle, the tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder (the ureters), or from the bladder to the penis (the urethra), can become blocked by stones (uroliths or calculi) produced in either the kidneys or the bladder.
This prevents the animal from passing urine and produces the condition known as obstructive urolithiasis. Occasionally cattle suffer from kidney stones or bladder stones, just like humans. These are called urinary calculi, and are mineralized clumps in the urinary tract.
In cattle, bladder stones are more common than kidney stones. Small ones usually pass out with urine and are not a problem, but sometimes stones become caught and create a blockage. contributing causes of the development of phosphate Among the bovine species, buffalo calves, % calculi with resultant obstructive urolithiasis in cattle.

Signs of urinary calculi include straining to urinate, dribbling urine, blood-tinged urine, and indications of extreme discomfort, such as tail wringing, foot stamping, and kicking at the abdomen.
Phosphate urinary calculi form in cattle on high grain diets, while silicate urinary calculi typically develop in cattle on rangeland. Prevention. Urinary Calculi, a urinary-tract condition in goats and sheep, prevents both urination and breeding in males. The twists and turns of the male urethra make passing solid particles difficult at best and impossible at worst.
Urinary Calculi is a disease that can and does kill animals quickly. Urinary calculi formation usually results from a combination of various physical, nutritional and management factors. It may occur due to excessive or imbalanced intake of minerals either from artesian water or in feedlots where cattle receive rations high in cereal grain and oil meals.
Urinary calculi or “water belly” is a very common metabolic problem of male sheep. The problem occurs when calculi (stones), usually comprised of phosphate salts, lodge in the urinary tract and prevent urination.
Normally, phosphorus is recycled through saliva and excreted via faeces in ruminants. Bovine cystitis is an inflammation of the urinary bladder of cattle that may ascend the ureters to cause infection of the kidneys (pyelonephritis). A similar condition is seen in sheep. The condition is sporadic and worldwide in distribution.

and Requirements in Beef Cows.” For cattle on a high-concentrate diet, the opposite problem exists. Most cereal grains are much higher in P than Ca; therefore, Ca must be added to the ration.
When Ca:P approachesor P intake exceeds Ca, reduced feed intake and urinary calculi (water belly) can result in steers and bulls. SWINGLE KF, MARSH H. Vitamin A deficiency and urolithiasis in range cattle. Am J Vet Res. Jul; 17 (64)– SWINGLE KF, MARSH H.

Cattle Feeding: Urinary Calculi Or “Water Belly” Cause: Urinary calculi (kidney stones) are hard mineral deposits in the urinary tracts of cattle.
Affected cattle may experience chronic bladder infection from mechanical irritation produced by the calculi. In more serious cases, calculi may block the flow of urine, particularly in male animals.
Urinary calculi are mostly problematic for feedlot steers, and less often seen in bulls or females. The male urethra (the tube that transports urine away from the bladder) is a long and winding road from the bladder to the outside of the body (see Figure 2).
