This session will provide a method to allow you to decide when the finding of hypercalcemia should be considered important now or if it is OK to be followed later. The importance for measurement of ionized calcium compared to total calcium will be emphasized. The diagnosis of hypercalcemia of malignancy, primary hyperparathyroidism, and hypervitaminosis-D will be discussed and an overview of idiopathic hypercalcemia in cats will be introduced. Emergency treatment for severe hypercalcemia using IV fluids, furosemide, calcitonin, and bisphosphonates will be reviewed.
