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:
Known to be highly expressed in liver cells, activity levels of alanine aminotransferase, or ALT, is a common value on most blood chemistry panels and is known to be a sensitive measure of liver health. Dogs with two ancestral G alleles show "normal" activity. Dogs that have one or two copies of the derived A allele may have lower resting levels of ALT activity, known as "low normal". If your dog's result is "low normal" then when a blood chemistry panel is being interpreted the values that you and your veterinarian consider "normal" may need to be adjusted. Please note that neither a "normal" nor a "low normal" result for this predicts a disease state or increased risk for liver disease. Moreover, this mutation does not associate with increased levels of ALT: If your dog has high ALT levels, 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.

All other health conditions tested
