Good Morning and welcome to Just answer. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
These enzymes indicate a liver dysfunction. The ALT is specific for liver function and the Alkaline Phosphatase is an enzyme that elevates when there are other issues such as liver dysfunction. Since your girl is so young, this may be caused by an infection or there could be something else going on. An Ultrasound of her liver would be your next step with a possible biopsy to know for sure what is causing this.
