A blood test can tell you if his blood calcium levels are too high. My Bam had that tested last summer, his blood calcium was too high and I was ordered to take out all high calcium vegs from his diet and only give him a small amount of pellets. We haven’t had a follow/up blood test, but he’s lost the overweight he had back then and he’s had a check-up by his rabbit savvy vet. He’s still off all high calcium greens.

It’s not calcium that causes the inflammation. I’d say the inflammation was local, i e at the location where he has the calcium deposit now. Calcification is an inflammatory response, it’s one of the body’s many ways to defend itself. Inflammation is a response to some type of injury or the presence of sth that the immune system identifies as not belonging in the body. It’s the body’s way of trying to fix the problem. At times, this response is so heavy or goes on for so long that it makes matters worse instead of better. Calcification is not the first line of defense, it doesn’t occur until the inflammation has been going on for some time.

Bigg-ish calcium deposits show up on x-rays, kidney stones for example.
