Hello this is Dr. Holloway but you can call me Dr. H, and I am a licensed veterinarian. I understand that your pets have elevated ALKP enzymes. Based on the enzyme elevation and clinical signs of increased drinking and swollen bellies, I would suspect an underlying Cushing's Disease (Hyperadrenocorticism).
