This has nothing to do with the surgery.  High lymphocytes are not that significant unless the total WBC is high.  How high is the phosphorus?  At 2 yrs of age that is rarely significant unless the dog also has kidney issues.  A low T4 may or may not be significant but if the free T4 is low and the dog has clinical sign then it might need to be treated.   Can you post a copy of the lab results?

Her total WBC is not elevated so I would not worry about the lymphocytes at this point; some dogs just run higher.  If she had a fever or was otherwise sick it might be more significant.  I would not worry about the phosphorus.  When you recheck her next month I would make sure to add a free T4 to the panel.

Elevated globulins indicate infection or inflammation.  How high was her number?  Any low platelets?  Many tick diseases can cause this scenario.  An appointment with an internist is a good idea.

I wonder if this might not be normal for her.  The globulins are not that high and without an elevated or very low WBC leukemia or lymphoma seems unlikely.  Please let us know what the internist says.
