Danger of Elevated Liver Enzymes
The Expert Vet (05-25-2015) #5040: Teresa wrote in to ask about elevated liver enzymes (high ALT) in her standard poodle and whether he needed a biopsy. Dr. Donna says Yes! and explains why elevated liver enzymes really matter in a blood test. If the levels remain high over time, you have to consider a liver biopsy even (especially) on a seemingly healthy young dog, who could ultimately have fatal liver failure if not addressed at a young age. Tracie discusses the value and reliability of Denamarin as a supportive supplement.
