I'm so sorry to hear about Maggie. Try not to get too upset until you have the full diagnosis. Elevated ALT can be from bacterial infections, toxins, certain medications, etc. I'm sure your vet will rule these out if he hasn't already.
I did lose my first Havanese from liver disease at age 8. We went through the ultrasound, biopsy, specialist, medications, and I learned alot. Please PM me and I'll give you all the info I have. There are several non-prescription meds that can be given to support the liver and are not harmful to the dog. Plus, there are some great support groups that are full of information. I'll be more than happy to share whatever resources I have.
