Interpreting the Numbers – Liver and Pancreatic Disease
At what level does an increased ALT or ALP unequivocally indicate liver disease? When are bile acids useful and when are they not? Do the results mean the same in dogs and cats – if not, why not?
Interpreting the Numbers – Azotaemia and Urine SG
Does every patient with azotaemia and impaired urine concentration have renal failure? If not, why not?
Interpreting the Numbers – The Haemogram
Is a full blood count sufficient to assess the anaemic patient? Is my patient bleeding or haemolysing? Why is cell morphology important?
