BRITTLE BONES

(Osteogenesis Imperfecta)

(Nutritional Secondary Hypoparathyroidism)

Brittle bones (Osteogenesis imperfecta) is thought to be a calcium-deficiency condition. If a cat does not get enough calcium, the parathyroid (a gland in the body) tries to draw calcium from all parts of the body and especially from the marrow (soft inside part) of the bones. This results in a wide marrow and a thin shell (the actual bone matter) around the marrow.
