My sister's GSD, Taylor, has been sick, no energy, her tounge looks white in a picture she sent me. I'm not sure of her age, probably about 3 or 4 but I may be off. Here's the information she sent. She was trying to contact her vet to get the latest test results - if she sends them to me I'll post them.

I CANNOT ANSWER QUESTIONS BECAUSE I KNOW NOTHING MORE THAN WHAT'S POSTED BELOW - SORRY!!!

The two values below are liver enzymes so they are concerned about her liver.

her alkaline phosphate should be 10-150 U/L
It has been been-
329.
376

Her alt phosphate (AGpT) should be 5-107 U/L
it has been
375
624
These values have to do with her blood cells
Her eosinophil should be 2-10 %.
It has been 0

Her autoplatet should be 154-510 thousand.
Hers has been 80 (just 80 not thousand). they say due to clumping and large platelets that may be inaccurate,

Things for her to consider....
Elevated ALKP and low eos could be signs of pyometra.
Is she spayed? If not when was her last heat cycle?

+ALKP can also be from corticosteroids--has she been on pred or any other drug?

Worst case, not very likely, check for bone marrow issues/cancer.

I can answer one of the questions - yes, she's been spayed for years - since she was a puppy.

I'll have to check about the steroids.

I'll let her know what you said.

Where's Lisa?

There are a couple of other things that have popped up, but tick-borne disease is what I'd concentrate on right now.
BINGO - she just got the test results back earlier today and the vet feels certain it's a tick borne disease!!!
