The main symptoms that occur with vitamin A and K hypervitaminosis are baldness, abnormal bone formation, diarrhea, dysplasia and dandruff, and there are disturbances in calcium and phosphorus metabolism. If there is an overabundance of vitamin D, urinary stone disease develops and magnesium metabolism is disrupted. The cat also exhibits symptoms such as weakness, anorexia, thirst, and depression. If an increased dose of vitamin D is taken for a long time, it causes hypercalcemia, which leads to elevated blood cholesterol levels, soft tissue mineralization, and lameness. Sometimes hypervitaminosis causes all the symptoms that are characteristic of intoxication.
