Thanks all for the wealth of info, I really appreciate it- About the breeding one too, and how they process stuff well, that kind of info is always great to know.

One of the dogs I grew up with had kidney failure and, when the first responder said over supplementation, it really struck me as dead on because of how I remember that affecting my dog. Basically it seems like when you get overloaded with something it can end up looking like you were under supplemented when you're dying, and it hits really quickly, because your body stops being able to function and process stuff. If it had been a slower process, and had it felt like her bones had been weak or misshapen, I might lean more towards under supplementation and MBD, but I just keep thinking of that dog. She did only have the twitches and weakness that one day before she died, which strikes me as a little odd for MBD (I don't know if that is odd though, maybe that's normal) - So, even though I'll never know for sure, I just have this feeling of that being it. I could also be just as wrong Truth of the matter is: I'm just going to make sure I keep track of how much supplement they're getting and make sure, either way, it's more on the mark of the proper ratio and amount for each species.

Thanks again everyone :3
