A couple of reports on guinea lynx have used actigall (or destolit in this country) that have dissolved stones with some success; provided the stones are carbonate and not oxalate.
(Although the old vet books say stones are usually oxalate, a recent research survey in the US where many piggie owners sent in stones that had been surgically removed for further analysis, showed that most in fact are carbonate)

You would need to get your vet to agree to write a prescription for this....and I suggest you search on actigall on guinea lynx forum and print out the posts and take to your vet.

Hi!
I took am looking into purchasing some Lysium as an alternative to Uriflow for price and quickness of delivery. Did you end up getting any Claire?
Has anyone since your post tried some?
