Clinical Approach to Hypercalcaemia
Hypercalcaemia is an interesting yet complicated disorder in cats and dogs. We can see this as both an emergency and a chronic presentation. In this lecture we will cover the physiology of calcium homeostasis in the body, how these cases can present clinically, how to diagnose and then how to treat these cases. We will take a case based approach to the lecture.
