    My dog Lucy just started howling late one night and turning around in circles. We were at our wit’s end trying to figure out what was wrong. Finally we were able to get her to the vet the next morning. I was so relieved to find out what it was. Though we don’t know for sure what caused the stones, Lucy is now on a different dog food and hopefully this won’t happen again.
