Abstract
An elevated total calcium concentration is an abnormality on feline blood examinations, and is frequently overlooked. The most important causes of feline hypercalcemia are neoplasia, chronic kidney disease and idiopathic hypercalcemia. In hypercalcemic cats, several diagnostic tests have to be performed in order to find the underlying cause: a thorough physical examination, retroviral testing for feline leukemia virus and feline immunodeficiency virus, complete blood count and serum chemistry profile, the measurement of ionized calcium, urinalysis, thoracic (and abdominal) radiography, abdominal and cervical ultrasonography and the measurement of parathyroid hormone and parathyroid hormone-related protein. A logical and specific work-up is required to obtain a definitive diagnosis. Treatment is mainly focussed on the underlying disease.
