New paper from VitDAL

Posted on July 6th, by Richard Mellanby in Uncategorized. No Comments

The VitDAL published a case report this week on an unusual case of hypophosphataemia in a  7 year od Greyhound which presented with muscle fasciculations. The case was very skilfully managed by a John Stewart in his practice in Cupar with input from the VitDAL team. Severe hypophosphataemia is a very unusual finding and this case highlights how marked muscle damage can be associated with very low phosphate concentrations in dogs. It also showed that the condition can be successfully managed with the patient making a very good recovery.
