Here are the collected posts from the Tortoise Bladder Stone Series hosted by the Sofa Cushion Challenge along with some additional resources compiled for those looking for more in-depth information. At present, no one knows for sure how stones are formed. Nevertheless most current studies are pointing in the direction of (1) too much protein in the diet coupled with (2) not enough water. Of course it isn't really that simple. Too much calcium may also play a role as may oxalic acid (present in some veggies) and other minerals combining with uric acid in the bladder. Studies are on-going.

Installments appear here in chronological order.
