Our dogs blood test came back and he has some very high

Customer Question

Our dogs blood test came back and he has some very high levels: His AST (sgot) number is782. ALT (sgpt) 1821. Other high numbers were globulin, alk Phosphatase, GGT, bilirubin, protein, ph, occult blood, wbc and rbc. We're having a difficult understanding what these all mean since the vet is somewhat vague about the whole thing. Please advice.

Customer: He was taken in initially because he had blood in his urine.
