My shihtzu has crystals in urine and I have to change her good to royal canine urinary 02 food. Had anyone used this . If so what treats are they allowed if any
It might depend on what type of crystals they are - has your vet said?
What about tiny pieces of cooked chicken as treats?
Sorry, I thought white meat was okay for struvite crystals. Or is there another reason why chicken isn't allowed?
Yes. She gets a lot of yeast infection and loose toilet
So - sorry, but to clarify; she has a chicken I tolerance as well as struvite crystals?
Yes and ivdd which isn't anything yo do with her crystals. She just has a lot to contend with

I discovered there was a supplement ( looked like marmite) can’t remember the name with made the urine more acidic to stop any more stones forming. It was added to her normal wet food ( no kibble).
