Malibu's Mother, Shiva, was a Presa Canario import; her father was Lalo De Los Menceyes and mother was Bella De Presas De La Orotava. Malibu's father is Magnus, a neo bandog”

Health Summary

warn icon

🔥Malibu🔥 has one variant that you should let your vet know about.

ALT Activity

warn icon

🔥Malibu🔥 inherited both copies of the variant we tested

Why is this important to your vet?

🔥Malibu🔥 has two copies of a variant in the GPT gene and is likely to have a lower than average baseline ALT activity. ALT is a commonly used measure of liver health on routine veterinary blood chemistry panels. As such, your veterinarian may want to watch for changes in 🔥Malibu🔥's ALT activity above their current, healthy, ALT activity. As an increase above 🔥Malibu🔥’s baseline ALT activity could be evidence of liver damage, even if it is within normal limits by standard ALT reference ranges.

What is ALT Activity?

Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) is a clinical tool that can be used by veterinarians to better monitor liver health. This result is not associated with liver disease. ALT is one of several values veterinarians measure on routine blood work to evaluate the liver. It is a naturally occurring enzyme located in liver cells that helps break down protein. When the liver is damaged or inflamed, ALT is released into the bloodstream.
