The causes and clinical signs of hepatobiliary involvement in disease are many and varied and often are not referable directly to this organ system. Laboratory investigation frequently is necessary to rule hepatic disease in or out, to assess the functional impact on the liver, and to decide whether hepatic disease is the patient's primary problem or a complication of something else. The selection and interpretation of laboratory tests to resolve these problems is based on an understanding of… Expand
Serum bile acids and the assessment of hepatic function in dogs and cats.
TLDR
The serum bile acids test is a highly sensitive and specific test of hepatic function, and is the best method of assessing liver function available to the private practitioner. Expand
Clinico-pathological and therapeutic studies on hepatic insufficiency in dogs
TLDR
The overall haemato-biochemical changes of dogs with hepatic dysfunction revealed anaemia, neutrophilic leukocytosis, prolonged clotting time, azotemia, hypoproteinemia, hyperbilirubinemia and rise of serum liver enzymes (ALT, AST, ALP and GGT). Expand

TLDR
As expected, icterus and markedly elevated ALT, ALP, GGT and SBA levels were demonstrated in chronic cholangiohepatitis, and in this disease hypoalbuminaemia was shown in 6/12 dogs, whereas in dogs with chronic non-specific hepatitis, mean SBA and albumin concentrations were normal. Expand
Neutrophilia As a Spesific Clinical Sign to Differentiate Acute Cholangiohepatitis With Others Liver Inflammatory Diseases in Cats
TLDR
The prognosis was unpredictable, but the animal has been survive after the first 3 months, than the long-term survival can be supposed. Expand

TLDR
In order to accurately detect hepatobiliary pathologies, it is important to have a basic understanding of liver associated clinical pathology parameters with reference to their exact location, serum half-lives, tissue concentration gradient and species differences to enable a toxicologist to identify commonly encountered toxic hepatic lesions.

ABNORMALITIES Multiple hematological , biochemical and urinalysis abnormalities can be expected in dogs with CPSS
The most frequent laboratory abnormalities in patients with congenital portosystemic shunts (CPSS) are microcytosis, hypoglycemia, hypoalbuminemia, hypoproteinemia, increased liver enzyme activities,Expand
Kidney Function and Damage
TLDR
This chapter elaborates the biochemistry of kidney functions and diseases, and discusses the general structure of the kidneys and the glomerulus and filtration process in kidney. Expand
Hepatite lobular dissecante em dois caninos Golden Retriever não relacionados geneticamente
TLDR
The clinical signs, age, breed and macroscopic and microscopic lesions presented by the two dogs were consistent with LDH, indicating that a suspicion of this disease should not be discarded in similar cases. Expand
laboratoriumdiagnose van congenitale portosystemische shunts
The most frequent laboratory abnormalities in patients with congenital portosystemic shunts (CPSS) are microcytosis, hypoglycemia, hypoalbuminemia, hypoproteinemia, increased liver enzyme activities,Expand
Clinical biochemistry profile of biventricular heart failure in a mixed-breed bitch
TLDR
Elevation of blood urea nitrogen, but not creatinine, was significant in appraisal of low cardiac output chronic renal failure resulting from left-sided heart failure, in contrast to serum bilirubin or albumin concentrations. Expand

TLDR
If liver disease is suspected but there are only marginal changes in the routine tests, the more sensitive tests of function, BSP retention and ammonia tolerance, are warranted and a sensitive, yet noninvasive, method to detect and define modest changes in hepatobiliary function may result. Expand
Bile acid concentrations in the diagnosis of hepatobiliary disease in the cat.
The clinical usefulness of measuring serum bile acid concentrations as a diagnostic test for hepatobiliary disease was examined in 80 cats that were suspected of having hepatic disease. Serum valuesExpand

Location of Liver Injury and Extent of Bilirubinaemia in Experimental Liver Lesions
Reports on experimental hepatotoxicities in domestic animals were reviewed in order to investigate the relationship between the location of liver lesions and hyperbilirubinaemia. A purelyExpand
Hematologic and biochemical abnormalities associated with induced extrahepatic bile duct obstruction in the cat.
TLDR
Seemingly, clinicopathologic changes of induced cholestatic hepatic injury depended largely on the duration of biliary obstruction, whereas the increased mean serum copper values persisted. Expand
Canine congenital portosystemic encephalopathy.
TLDR
The case records of 21 dogs with congenital portosystemic encephalopathy are reviewed and it is revealed that all the dogs had a small liver and the kidneys were enlarged in 5 of 10 dogs in which kidney size could be estimated. Expand
Urinary calculi associated with portosystemic shunts in six dogs.
TLDR
Portosystemic shunts were diagnosed in 6 dogs with urinary calculi and signs of neurologic disease, and the interpretation of pathogenesis was that decreased delivery of blood to the liver due to shunting or decreased liver function can potentially result in high blood concentrations of ammonia and uric acid.

Diagnostic use of serum gamma-glutamyltransferase in canine liver disease.
TLDR
While determination of serum GGT in dogs may aid in the differentiation of sources of alkaline phosphatase, GGT alone appears to offer little in the diagnosis of canine liver disease. Expand
Acute aflatoxicosis in swine: clinical pathology, histopathology, and electron microscopy.
TLDR
The greater the morphologic change in liver of the treated pigs, the greater the increase in liver-specific serum enzyme activities. Expand
Plasma amino acid analysis in dogs with experimentally induced hepatocellular and obstructive jaundice.
TLDR
Molar ratio and aromatic amino acid concentrations correlated better with hepatic necrosis and inflammation than did standard biochemical indices (eg, bilirubin, liver enzymes) and may be useful in the differential diagnosis of hepatocellular and obstructive jaundice in dogs. Expand
