When my calico was barely 3yo, she started developing bladder infections & ended up having three very large stones removed from her bladder. She's been on a prescription diet ever since & that has eliminated the problem. My vet said that magnesium was the cause of her problem, so a diet low in magnesium was mandatory. She eats Science Diet c/d. I also mix water with her canned food to increase her water intake & added a water fountain to get her to drink more water. Also its best to use bottled or highly filtered water since tap water also contains magnesium & other minerals. I'm surprised your vet hasn't put her on a perscription diet already since she's having recurring problems.
