Clinical Traits

These clinical traits are valuable to your veterinarian and can inform the clinical decisions and diagnoses they make.

Alanine Aminotransferase Activity result: Low Normal

Willow has one copy of a variant associated with reduced ALT activity as measured on veterinary blood chemistry panels. Please inform your veterinarian that Willow has this genotype, as ALT is often used as an indicator of liver health and Willow is likely to have a lower than average resting ALT activity. As such, an increase in Willow’s ALT activity could be evidence of liver damage, even if it is within normal limits by standard ALT reference ranges.

Genetic Health Conditions

A genetic health condition indicates a genetic mutation that increases the risk that an animal develops a specific disease.

Not At Risk

Good news! Willow did not test positive for any of the genetic conditions that Embark screens for.

It is still important to let your veterinarian know these results because they could help guide Willow’s diagnosis and treatment if she gets sick in the future.

Not A Carrier

Good news! Willow is not a carrier for any of the genetic conditions that Embark tests for.
