Abstract


Nutritional secondary hyper parathyroidism is a metabolic disorder in which bone production is normal but osteopenia results from excessive bone resorption. It is caused by diets providing excess phosphate and/ or insufficient calcium. This paper reports a case of nutritional secondary hyper parathyroidism in a Great Dane male dog.
