The influence of anaemia on alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activities in dogs infected with B. canis was investigated. Samples of blood and serum from 230 infected dogs were divided into two groups: A (with anaemia) and B (without anaemia). The differences in the activities of the enzymes between both groups were not statistically significant. These results suggest that mild anaemia, as the only factor, has no influence on ALT… CONTINUE READING
