“Once crystals of one mineral type form in urine, the conditions can be improved for the formation of other types. In other words, a crystal of one mineral type serves as a risk factor for formation of crystals of other types and provides one explanation of why large, or macroscopic, uroliths may contain more than one mineral.”

—Carl A. Osborne, DVM, PhD, DACVIM
