soluble oxalate poisoning
in ruminants acute poisoning due to ingestion of large amounts causes hypocalcemia with muscle weakness and recumbency. Precipitation of oxalate crystals in renal tubules causes nephrosis. Long-term ingestion in horses can cause osteodystrophia fibrosa. Most cases are the result of eating large amounts of oxalate-bearing plants, e.g. Oxalis spp., Setaria spp., Halogeton glomeratus, Portulaca oleracea.
