A Lhassa Apso is presented in emergency after having been injured by another dog. It was suffering from a mandibular fracture. The clinical exam revealed generalized and excessive mobility of the whole dentition. Radiographs showed generalized jaw bone demineralisation. A blood sample was analysed and revealed chronic renal disease. We came to the conclusion that this dog was suffering from secondary renal hyperparathyroidism. The hypocalcified bone was so thin that a slight trauma induced the mandibular fracture.
