The liver enzyme alanine aminotransferase, or ALT, is one of several values your veterinarian measures on routine blood work to gauge liver health.
Genetic testing is the only way to know if your dog has this clinical condition.

You and your veterinarian would then be able to monitor your dog for any deviation from this established baseline.
