Hypoalbuminemia caused byPoor diet, Diarrhea/PLE, fever, Infection, Liver Dz, Burns, Vasculitis, Glomerulopathy/PLN
What is AST?mitochondrial enzyme, cellular damage marker
Elevated AST caused byLiver damage, Kidney infection, Myocardial infarction, Muscle damage (dogs don't worry till x2-3)
What is ALT?Hepatocyte cytoplasmic enzyme
What is Alk Phos?Indicator of cholestasis, membrane bound to bile canicular surface (dogs don't worry till <4x, elevated w/ steroids)
