The Budapest Urolith Center was founded in the summer of the year 2000 by B. Bende DVM.

The activities of the Center are aiming at:

  1. assisting the treatment of the animals suffered by urolithiasis (mainly dogs and cats) with the analysis of theirs uroliths, and
  2. carrying out scientific examination of the different kind of urolithiasis and underlying factors of the animals

The BUC is operating at the Animal Hospital of Budapest

(Lehel street No.43, H-1135 Budapest, Hungary)



In the BUC we investigate the characteristics of the urinary calculi sent to there by veterinarians and determine chemical composition of those. On the basis of the results of the examinations conclusions can be drawn concerning the main cause initiating or starting the formation of urinary calculi. This information provides a reliable basis to choose the adequate therapy and diet making possible to dissolve the present uroliths and/or to prevent the reoccurrence of those. All these information will be included in the report sent back to the applicant vet detailing the possible underlying factors and therapeutic advices too.
