I have a C+ mastiff and he just recently had surgery to remove stones from his bladder and urethra  Has anyone had any luck managing these stones? I intend to start use of potassium citrate pills and am looking for all options to help slow the process of these stones formation. Thanks!

The best cystinuria treatment option for Mastiffs and some other breeds appears to be neutering.  Neutering will not prevent the dogs from blocking that already have pre-existing cystine stones in their urinary tract, but neutering is making the urinary cystine levels return to normal levels on the genetically affected Mastiffs.
