A. That would depend on the laboratory reference range (so that would depend on your veterinarian).
For example if compared with the laboratory ranges 1.9 ( I am assuming we are talking about grams/liters) I normally use, that value would be mildly to moderately decreased.
Here a list of possible causes of decreased albumin levels.
- Hepatic failure (failure of albumin synthesis)
- Gastrointestinal protein loss (protein-losing enteropathies)
- Renal protein loss (protein-losing nephropathies)
- Other external losses in exudate or hemorrhage
- Hyperglobulinemia (with a â€˜compensatoryâ€™ decrease in albumin production)
- Starvation/protein malnutrition
- Chronic illness
- Laboratory error
