K Lakshmi and K Padmaja
A total of 88 dogs were diagnosed with hepatic disorders based on clinico, hemato-biochemical and diagnostic imaging. Out of which, 32 dogs were diagnosed with diffuse parenchymal disorders with ascites, 32 dogs with diffuse parenchymal disorders without ascites, and 24 with focal parenchymal disorders. Elevated activity of ALT, AST, ALP, GGT, total bilirubin, direct bilirubin and globulin with decreased levels of total protein, albumin, glucose and serum electrolytes (sodium, potassium and chloride) were common biochemical findings recorded in all hepatic disorders affected dogs.
