A. These diagnostic markers are much different than the ones normally used in veterinary medicine in the US, however lyse usually means the ability of a cell to break down, so these markers were likely looking for how many red and white blood cells were already broken down (common in dogs with anemia type diseases).
It is best to contact your local veterinarian for information about these diagnostic markers as they will be better trained and able to go over them with you. Your vet can then also recommend any treatment plans as needed to help improve your dog's health.
