Clinical Traits

These clinical genetic traits can inform clinical decisions and diagnoses. These traits do not predict a disease state or increased risk for disease. We currently assess one clinical trait: Alanine Aminotransferase Activity.

Alanine Aminotransferase Activity result: Normal

Windridge Love Is All You Need! has two normal alleles at ALT.

More information on Alanine Aminotransferase Activity:
The liver enzyme alanine aminotransferase, or ALT, is one of several values your veterinarian measures on routine blood work to gauge liver health. Dogs with one or more copies of the “A” allele are likely to have a lower baseline ALT activity (“low normal”) than dogs with zero copies of the “A” allele (“normal”). This means that your veterinarian may recommend blood work to establish an individualized baseline ALT value during an annual wellness exam or before starting certain medications. You and your veterinarian would then be able to monitor your dog for any deviation from this established baseline. Please note that this mutation should never cause an increase in your dog’s ALT activity and does not cause liver disease. If your dog has high ALT activity, please consult your veterinarian.

Health Report

How to interpret these results:

AT RISK status: Testing positive (AT RISK) is predictive of your dog being affected by this condition, but it is not a final diagnosis nor does it predict when symptoms may occur or the severity of a condition in your dog.

CARRIER status: This indicates the dog has inherited a recessive allele for a genetic trait or mutation. This is not enough to cause symptoms of the disease, but is important to bear in mind if the dog ever has offspring.


Not AT RISK for any conditions tested.
Not a CARRIER for any conditions tested.
