Default What is MCH/ MCHC?

Anyone know what MCH and MCHC are? They were two of the things tested in the presurgical blood work Gunner had done before his neuter today and the paper they gave me says these two are high values; everything else was normal. Just wondering

I did a search on a veterinary site and didn't turn up MCH or MCHC specifically, but did turn up a short article explaining the parts of pre-surgical blood work that might answer some of your questions. http://www.veterinarypartner.com/Con...S=0&C=0&A=1630

Oh, here's one that actually mentions what MCH is. When you put it together with the information in the first link, you get a pretty good picture of what's going on.
