Abstract
A miniature schnauzer (8 years old, male castrated), diagnosed as diabetes mellitus 6 months ahead, were referred to the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital of our University with hindlimb stiffness, facial rubbing and tetany. Serum chemistry showed severe hypocalcemia, hypomagnesemia, and measured iPTH (intact pharathyroid hormone) concentration was low (<3.0 pmol/L). Consistent rate injection of calcium gluconate (282 mg/kg over 30 min) resulted in prompt relief of the tetany. Then typical treatment for hypoparathyroidism (calcium gluconate and dihydrotachysterol per os) with magnesium administration could control the neuromuscular signs. Diabetes mellitus is being controlled by insulin therapy and prescription diet. Hypomagnesemia in diabetic dog may be induced hypoparathyrodism.
