This test was included in the blood panel that was performed on our elderly Shepherd mix and when it was elevated it indicated to our Veterinarian that something was wrong with his liver. With this test and some further diagnostic testing our vet was able to diagnose him with acute liver failure and we were able to treat and prepare accordingly. Had we not known about the liver failure and continued giving him certain medications he wouldn't have been around for very long.
