The video presented below shows a surgery technique for removing bladder stones in a dog.
Formation of bladder stones in the bladder of dogs are a collection of minerals and some other materials.
The most common bladder stone seen in dogs is made of calcium oxalate, struvite, cystine crystals or urate.
Many types of bladder stones can be identified by the type by simply viewing an urine sample under the microscope.

If left untreated, the bladder stones can become very big or very vast in number and can create discomfort, inability to withhold urine and bleeding from the urinary tract. The most common procedure for eliminating bladder stones is surgery.

On the video below, you can watch a veterinary surgery to remove a bladder stone from a 40 lb dog.
