Sivaraman S, Vigneshwara S, Suvetha S, Kathirvel S and Dharmaceelan S
Fibrous osteodystrophy is a mineral based metabolic disease of sheep and goat in which bone mineral is resorbed as a result of prolonged hyper secretion of parathyroid hormone. High phosphorus or low calcium in the diet frequently contribute to fibrous osteodystrophy as a result of secondary nutritional hyperparathyroidism. It is most commonly seen in animals consuming high phosphorus diet, diet with a high proportion of bran or other cereal grains are often associated with this disease. Cereal grains have an inappropriate calcium to phosphorus ratio. As a result of low calcium level in circulation, bone resorption of calcium occurs.
