Behavior in dogs with spontaneous hypothyroidism during treatment with levothyroxine

None of the hypothyroid dogs in this cohort showed a significant change in any of the evaluated behavioral signs and neurohormonal status after 6 months of thyroid hormone supplementation.

Associations of C-Reactive Protein, Free Triiodothyronine, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone and Creatinine Levels with Agitation in Patients with Schizophrenia: A Comparative Cross-Sectional Study

Increased serum CRP and FT3 levels and decreased serum TSH and creatinine levels are independent risk factors for agitation in hospitalized patients with schizophrenia.

Investigation of adrenal and thyroid gland dysfunction in dogs with ultrasonographic diagnosis of gallbladder mucocele formation

It is suggested that dogs with gallbladder mucocele formation have a greater capacity for cortisol synthesis and pinpoint DHEAS elevations as a potential clue to the underlying pathogenesis of the disease.

Making the Case for Multi-Axis Assessment of Behavioural Problems

A multi-axis model for the collection and organisation of information about companion animal behaviour problem cases is set out that avoids some of the limitations of classification systems, is aligned with the current research approach in human psychiatry, and assists the clinician in making a complete and thorough assessment of a case.

Measurement of serum total thyroxine, triiodothyronine, free thyroxine, and thyrotropin concentrations for diagnosis of hypothyroidism in dogs.

Results indicate that measurement of serum free T4 and TSH concentrations is useful for diagnosis of hypothyroidism in dogs, and about a quarter of the dogs with confirmed hyp Timothyroidism, however, will have serum T SH concentrations within reference limits.

It is recommended that thyroid gland function be assessed in all dogs presenting with aggression problems, especially those developing slowly in mature animals, and canine hypothyroidism should be a considered differential diagnosis in dogs presenting for suspect canine cognitive dysfunction, as many of the behavioral symptoms are shared.

The Effect of Hypothyroid Function on Canine Behavior

Thyroid hormones are frequently used to accelerate the antidepressant effect of tricyclic antidepressants and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and may also be given to supplement the effect of antidepressants when they are not achieving the desired effect.

Pituitary-Thyroid State Correlates with Central Dopaminergic and Serotonergic Activity in Healthy Humans

CNS monoamine-thyroid interactions are of physiological significance in the normal, euthyroid human, according to cerebrospinal fluid concentrations and blood samples obtained from indwelling subarachnoid and venous catheters.

Low CSF 5-HIAA concentrations and severe aggression and impaired impulse control in nonhuman primates.

Adolescent male rhesus macaques with low CSF 5-HIAA concentrations are at risk for 1) exhibiting more violent forms of aggressive behavior and 2) loss of impulse control as evidenced by greater risk taking during movement through the forest canopy.

Influence of drugs on thyroid function in dogs.

The effects of glucocorticoids, propranolol, sulfonamides, phenobarbital, potassium bromide, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIDs) on canine thyroid function are summarized here.

Clinical classification of canine aggression

Evaluation of antithyroglobulin antibodies after routine vaccination in pet and research dogs.

In the research Beagles, there was a significant increase in anti-bovine thyroglobulin antibodies in all vaccinated dogs, compared with control dogs, and recent vaccination may result in increased anti-canine thyrogenic antibodies.
