The test for my dog came back 1.8 on an acceptable range of 0.5 - 1.6 ml/dL. That was considered high, but not high enough that I'm going to do anything about it.

I'd call your vet and ask what the acceptable range is. They are obviously not using the same scale as my vet or your dog would be critical. From discussion with my vet, creatinine is an indicator for kidney issues.

We need a reference range before we can give input. There are a few good sources out there already for normal GH values. Creatinine tends to run a bit high so slightly elevated numbers shouldn't be anything to worry about unless historically she ran much lower and suddenly she's having symptoms that prompted the visit.
