If your cat has been diagnosed with hypercalcemia, your veterinarian will very likely want to admit it into hospital for fluid therapy. Once the underlying primary disease is diagnosed, your cat will be given the appropriate medication(s). Your doctor will continue to check your cat's serum calcium twice a day until the levels have returned to normal during its stay at the veterinary clinic.
Your veterinarian will set up a schedule of follow-up appointments for your cat dependent on the underlying cause of the hypercalcemia.
