My name is Dr. G, and I will try and help you as best as I can.
First a few questions: is your dog on any medications? Has she had any medical problems in the past? Any steroid medications in the past (temaril, cortisone, prednisone)? Which liver value is elevated (ALP, ALT)? Does your dog have any clinical signs right now or is she normal? Any skin problems?

I believe we are having technical difficulties. You do not appear to be getting any of my responses. I am going to opt out so someone else can try to help you.

My name is Camille and I’m the moderator for this topic. I am sorry, but It seems that the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. But don’t worry….. If you are still waiting for an answer, I will try to find a new professional to assist you! Please keep in mind that sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected. All of our Professionals come on at varying times, so sometimes it’s a bit difficult to predict. Either way....If you would prefer not to wait, please feel free to let me know, and I will cancel this question for you. Thank you.

Welcome to JustAnswer. I am a licensed veterinarian and I'll be happy to assist you. Hopefully you'll be able to relieve my response as you didn't seem to get the previous expert's questions. I'll keep an eye on this to get back to you as quickly as possible.
I have a few questions in order to better help you with your questions. Does Bella currently have any symptoms or is she normal? Is she on any medications at the moment? Has she been on any steroid medications is the past like Vetalog, prednisone, Temaril P? Is her water consumption normal? Do you know which liver enzyme is elevated. . .AlkPhos or ALT?
Thanks for your answers as I sure hope you get this.
