    Leg spasms can be a sign of calcium deficiency or metabolic bone disease. How often and with what are you dusting the tincs food? Also how old is the dusting powder as the active ingredients can degrade over time.

    Tetany... (deficient blood calcium) also happens in humans. Usually starts with fine twitches and numbness, then progresses to tremors, followed by contractions or inability to move muscles. =a.1434844115446.2055312.1363241107&source=11&ref= bookmark
