The bone disease affects the food or nutrients that the animals receive. There are many factors such as Hypervitaminosis A (Receiving too much Vitamin A for a long period) which can cause liver disease or rickets and Hypovitaminosis D, which is the result of lacking Vitamin D. There is a severe abnormality in bone formation. Despite disrupting the usual cartilage bone disease, chronic respiratory disease or lack of phosphorus, vitamin D, and calcium can also cause the disease.


A Bone disease caused by nutrients often derived from the deficiency of receiving inadequate calcium, phosphorus, vitamin A and D including the thyroid gland malfunctioning that supports the metabolic system performance.
