|I would NOT worry about these test results in the slightest. The BUN is barely elevated. By one point. That is statistically insignificant. The creatinine is NORMAL. That is the one I would be concerned about if it was elevated. Same with cholesterol, just slightly above normal. If you pulled blood an hour later or even re-ran the test you would get slightly different numbers. I only worry about elevations that are seriously above the baseline of normal. Croutons are not.
Remember that blood tests were calibrated on kibble fed dogs. There are some differences to be expected.
But Croutons blood test actually looks fine to me! If you are super concerned, go ahead and retest in 6 months and compare findings, but I would not worry about these numbers at all. And I certainly would NOT change the diet.
