Hypercalcaemia is a condition when there is too much calcium in the blood. It often occurs on dogs with cancer especially cancer lymphoma. Other conditions where this is seen is with Addison’s disease and kidney disease.
Causes can be from being poisoned. This can be from obvious sources such as slug pellets, rat poison and household chemicals, but other poisoning can occur from medication and synthetic vitamin D.
Symptoms are vague, and can also indicate a multitude of other problems, but they include loss of appetite, an increase in thirst and urination, weakness, anaemia, vomiting and dehydration. Fractures can occur, as the bones will become weak.
When there is too much calcium in the blood, the kidneys’ job is to filter out the excess. However, this may not be possible if the kidneys are not in perfect working order, if there is too much calcium or if this has been going on for an extended period.
So, instead of being passed out with the urine, the calcium will be deposited in various place it has no business being, This can cause inflammation and pain.
