My corgi is prone to getting bladder stones, and I was looking to add a wet food to his diet to help with prevention. What are some good wet foods to do this?

You might want to think about the water you give him to make sure there isn't a high mineral content. Private well water is loaded with minerals and can lead to bladder and kidney stones. Your vet can probably give you good info on that, too.

My dog has had 2 surgeries to remove oxalate stones, this was 2 years ago. I own a pet supply store and we sell holistic diets so I did not want to put my dog on a precription diet if I didn't have to, so after much research I found (although opposite of what the vet wanted) that a good high protein diet was in fact a better option for my dog. This is not the case if your dog has a Kidney DISEASE, and please research first if you want to try it. Taste of the Wild dry and canned has proven so far to work for my dog, he has had no issues for 2 years now. I hope you find the right diet for your dog, the website that jillian has given you is a great start.
