Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!So sorry to hear Molly's liver values are increased four times since the last done. The concern is definitely that her liver is having some issues which can be hepatitis (infection, inflammation), cancer, or cirrhosis. Do you know if any of her other liver values are also elevated such as the GGT, Total Bilirubin, AST, Alkaline Phosphatase?The next step is definitely to have an abdominal ultrasound done to evaluate the liver architecture, possibly get a sample, ensure the gall bladder is not obstructed and this should be done by a veterinary radiologist. In addition, starting a liver supplement such as denamarrin to help support the liver function and using a low protein food as well. Please let me know how else I can assist you both today, I know this must be terribly frightening and if there is anything I can do please don't hesitate to ask. If you have more questions or if I can help in any other way, please do not hesitate to ask!
