The prevalence of uroliths that contain drugs, their metabolites, or toxic ingredients in dogs, cats, and other animals is unknown. The authors examine specific drugs and their use in the animal population. They discuss these drugs in terms of uroliths and urolith formation in a variety of animals, making recommendations on which drugs can be safely used based on evidence from the authors' own studies and the literature.
