    Default Too much calcium?

    Curious here. I know what happens to squirrels if they do not have enough calcium. However, I've been trying to research and have come up empty handed, what happens to squirrels if they have too much calcium? Is too much bad for them? What are the side effects?

    Thank you.

    Along those lines, can they get too much protein? There is protein in rat block, so was wondering why some recipes add protein powder as well.
