Customer Question

I have a 4 year old male standard longhair doxie. Oscar had some blood work this week and is showing high ALT/SGPT Alk Phosphatase and Lymphocytes along with low neutophils. He seems healthy, no sign of illness.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Oscar
JA: Is there anything else important you think the veterinarian should know about Oscar?
Customer: Not really, he had major surgery at 1 year on both ulnas. He gets glycoflex III every day, plus a probiotic and vitamin. He is on Fromm's Salmon food which he has had since he was a puppy.

You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply. Please be patient. This may take a few minutes.

It's important to evaluate those findings in respect with the rest of his biochemical profile. Can you upload a copy of all of his test results to our conversation? I understand that you might not have a copy at home but Oscar's vet can give you one which you can scan into your computer and then give me the file link or you can photograph the pages and upload them by using the paperclip icon (if you can see that icon) or by using an external app such as dropbox.com/
