Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!

There are several values that we evaluate with the liver.

Examples and normal ranges would include:

ALT 16-91
ALKP 20-155
AST 23-65
TBili 0.1-0.0
GGT 7-24

All machines will have slightly different normals, but those are common normal reference ranges.

Regarding the ALT - there are other non-liver diseases which can cause this:

-GI disease
-Pancreatic disease
- Endocrine disease (Cushing's, hypothyroid)

you can also consider an abdominal ultrasound to see if the liver looks abnormal.
