Subject: [Ferret-Health-list] Urgent - hypercalcemia help needed

Increased BUN can be a result in renal diseaes but if I'm not mistaken and
please correct this if it is wrong but ferrets with renal disease have
hypocalcemia not hypercalcemia? Along with hyperphosphatemia. The ultrasound
is a good idea. Keep the list posted. Thanks, KM
