Presurgical Blood Screen Values

August 1, 2015, 7:47 AM

I just had my Pomeranian neutered.  The ran the initial blood work.  It came back with his ALT at 85 U/L.  They said that was slightly high and gave him Denosyl.  I am worried about this.  Any suggestions?

Although an ALT of 85 is technically above normal it is slight elevation.  I would have probably just suggested a repeat in a month if he otherwise seems normal.  Denosyl is a general enhancer of the livers ability to recover and it never really hurts so go ahead with it.  I would not be alarmed just plan for a recheck.
