Hi. My basenji
has a high platelet count of 630, high cholesterol count of 407, high triglycerides count of 1733 (range 23-291), and lipemia 3+, andALT has gone down to high of 274 (range 12-118) and Alk Phos has gone down to high of 217 (range 5-131). I give her milk thistle and denamarin. Can you tell me wat could be causing these readings?
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with your dog?
Customer: Nothing that I can tell.
JA: Where does your dog seem to hurt?
Customer: Only between shoulder blades occasionally , due to dissentegrated disc space. No discomfort otherwise.
JA: Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?
JA: OK. Nothing visually obvious. Is your dog eating normally?
Customer: Yes, she's on stella and views dehydrated raw
JA: OK. No appetite problems. Problems with drinking can be serious. I'm glad you noticed it. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Layla is 7 yrs 5 mo, weighs 22.5. She's a rescue, was half her weight due to starvation in April 2014. She looks and acts great.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Layla?
Customer: No except she has lots of energy and I haven't been able to give her long walks this summer due to record breaking heat and himidity here in MD.
