    it was slightly elevated. Does anyone have any suggestions? Globulin level was slightly low too.

    This is related to the liver values, ALT, right? I'm trying to remember, my old dog had very high levels back in 2012, scary high. I think it was like 900 when normal was about 112...? My old dog was 11 yrs old at that time, and we drove across the US with her in an old camper starting the week after she got that diagnosis.

    From what I remember, The vet prescribed Denosyl which has SAMe (S-Adenosylmethionine), it is to help the liver and it did work to lower her ALT numbers. She was a 50 pound dog and got the 425 mg Denosyl pill every day. I also found I could use SAMe for humans so I gave her that too when I found it on sale for less than the Denosyl.

    How high were the numbers as compared to normal? If it is only slightly higher, I would not worry too much.

    Here's a few links about the Denosyl and SAMe --

    I did give her milk thistle at first but it did not seem to help, and I just stayed with giving her the Denosyl every day. The Denamarin has the extract from the milk thistle added, the Denosyl does not.

    Hi Brindle,

    Thanks, it is more kidney related, only slightly elevated but he got into household chemicals and as quite ill a few weeks ago. Im sure he would benefit from liver support too.

    Ahhh so it is Teddy who has the troubles, I thought it was Tonka... Ouch! That's a shame he got into some household chemicals, that would make him sick.

    Maybe try looking up on google what the chemical was and dog's reaction to it, that might give some info on what can help his kidney numbers. My old dog had elevated liver numbers so that is what I thought you meant and that is what I was more familiar with.

    Hope he's doing better soon.
