Why Hypercalcemia Must Be Solved

Took Cooper to the cardiologist and so far all's well. But he said it's important to solve the hypercalc issue because a high calc combining with phosphorous will deposit calcium in the heart and kidneys creating basically cement which is how the organs get damaged and a cat eventually dies of complications. So far, he has very low phos w/hypercalc which means there's no phos for calc to bind with to make cement. Except low phos can lead to anemia, creating other complications. So, will call MSU for internist appt. for later.  If you cat has high/low anything, it is very important to find the reason and to mitigate a solution.
