Vitamin D toxicity is a concern that often shows up in the news due to pet food recalls.  Patients who are exposed to high levels of Vitamin D, should evaluate if they are Vitamin D toxic by testing for Vitamin D levels, along with PTH and Calcium levels.  The Vitamin D Toxicity Panel is a quick, cost effective way to determine if the elevated Vitamin D levels have created toxicity.

Panel Includes: 25[OH]D, PTH 1-84, total Calcium

Clinical Applications:

  1. Dog or Cat with:
    • excessive Vitamin D supplementation
    • exposed to high levels of calcitriol (ie. rat poison)
