In present investigation, a total of 4,420 dogs were screened during the period January 2021 to July 2021. Out of which, 129 dogs were suspected of hepatic dysfunctions among them only 56 dogs were diagnosed with hepatic dysfunctions forming an incidence of 43.41%. However, seven apparently healthy dogs served as control group. Incidence of hepatic dysfunctions in dogs was recorded more in Labrador Retrievers (25.00%) and lowest incidence in Great Danes, Cocker Spaniels, Non-Descript breeds (3.57%) each. With respect to age, highest incidence of hepatic dysfunctions was recorded in dogs aged > 8 years (35.71%) and lowest incidence in < 1 years (16.07%). Further, sex- wise incidence of hepatic dysfunctions was more in females (58.93%) than males (41.07%).
