Hi Again. We have a 11 year old mix breed that you helped us out with back in Dec 2017. You were so reassuring and helpful that we want to ask you for help again. Belle just had her annual physical and her ALKP was 257 and ALT was 225. Our Vet is not overly concerned but wants us to give Belle a Supplement called Denamarin for 30 days and then retake the blood work. Also her TP was 7.6 g/dl and TRIG was 165 mg/dl. Belle is acting like a puppy, very active, eating well, playing, etc. We just wanted to get your opinion on her blood results and what our Vet is recommending.. regards ***** ***** Fair Lawn NJ

Hi there!

Nice to hear from you again

I agree with your veterinarians recommendation

Lets re-test those enzymes

IF they continue to climb then an abdominal ultrasound would be in order

Otherwise do not worry about it

Okay?
