I just called and got the numbers

CPK was 1146 and the baseline was 10-200

I found this:

"Experience has shown that levels can rise slightly with muscular exertion alone but where pathological conditions exist the levels are usually very high. Increase associated with cardiomyopathies is are much less than with rhabdomyopathies in small animals. Generally, re-sampling in 2 to 3 days is recommended to exclude trauma as a cause of elevated levels.

Trauma (surgery, i/m /injections, complicated venipuncture, recumbancy, severe exertion)
Convulsions or seizures
Cramping in greyhounds
Myositis (infectious, immune mediated, nutritional)
