[RC] Calcium issues at a ride - k s swigart

Chrystal said:

Anyway long story short eventually the vet decided it was
?a calcium problem and tubed a whole bunch of water,calcium
?and magnesium oxide into her. Within 40 min's Miss T's HR
?was down to 40 and she has been perfect ever since. 

If my horse's HR problems resolved themselves with the administration of water, 
calcium and magnesium oxide, I would be inclined to think that I might have 
magnesium issues rather than just calcium, espeically since lots of feeds are 
either high in calcium or are calcium fortified.

However, magnesium and calcium compete with each other for uptake so, getting 
the right amount of both can be tricky.
