A cross-sectional study was performed in order to examine the association between canine aggression to familiar people and serum concentrations of total thyroxine (TT4), free thyroxine (fT4), thyroxine autoantibodies (T4AA), total triiodothyronine (TT3), free triiodothyronine (fT3), triiodothyronine autoantibodies (T3AA), thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), and thyroglobulin autoantibodies (TgAA). The subjects were 31 dogs historically aggressive to familiar people and 31 dogs with no history of… Expand
The effect of thyroid replacement in dogs with suboptimal thyroid function on owner-directed aggression: A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial
Abstract The efficacy of thyroid hormone replacement therapy (THRT) as treatment for owner-directed aggression in client-owned dogs with borderline low thyroid hormone levels was evaluated by meansExpand
Behavior in dogs with spontaneous hypothyroidism during treatment with levothyroxine
TLDR
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. Expand
Associations of C-Reactive Protein, Free Triiodothyronine, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone and Creatinine Levels with Agitation in Patients with Schizophrenia: A Comparative Cross-Sectional Study
TLDR
Increased serum CRP and FT3 levels and decreased serum TSH and creatinine levels are independent risk factors for agitation in hospitalized patients with schizophrenia. Expand
Investigation of adrenal and thyroid gland dysfunction in dogs with ultrasonographic diagnosis of gallbladder mucocele formation
TLDR
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. Expand
Making the Case for Multi-Axis Assessment of Behavioural Problems

TLDR
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.

Aggressive Behavior in Dogs
TLDR
Because humans and dogs have different communication systems, misunderstandings can occur between the two species and these messages are generally unacceptable to humans. Expand

Measurement of serum total thyroxine, triiodothyronine, free thyroxine, and thyrotropin concentrations for diagnosis of hypothyroidism in dogs.
TLDR
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. Expand
Comparison of cerebrospinal fluid monoamine metabolite levels in dominant-aggressive and non-aggressive dogs
TLDR
It is suggested that reduced serotonergic function is associated with aggressive behavior and impaired impulse control in dogs, a finding that is consistent with observations in primates, and suggests that serotonin modulates aggressive behavior throughout mammals. Expand
Canine behaviors associated with hypothyroidism.

  • Medicine
  • Journal of the American Animal Hospital Association
  • 2003
TLDR
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. Expand
The Effect of Hypothyroid Function on Canine Behavior
Introduction In human medicine, a wide range of behavioral symptoms have been reported in hypothyroid patients. In the early stages of the disease, reduced cognitive function and concentration,Expand
Age-related variations in hematologic and plasma biochemical test results in Beagles and Labrador Retrievers.
TLDR
Results suggested that there were age-related changes in hematologic and plasma biochemical test results in these 2 breeds of dogs, most evident during the first year of life, reflecting growth and maturation of the puppies. Expand
Pituitary-Thyroid State Correlates with Central Dopaminergic and Serotonergic Activity in Healthy Humans
TLDR
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. Expand

TLDR
The focus in this article is on the logical progression of test choice, highlighting total thyroxine, free thyroxines, triiodothyronine, thyrotropin (TSH), and antithyroid antibodies. Expand
Low CSF 5-HIAA concentrations and severe aggression and impaired impulse control in nonhuman primates.
TLDR
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. Expand
Influence of drugs on thyroid function in dogs.
TLDR
The effects of glucocorticoids, propranolol, sulfonamides, phenobarbital, potassium bromide, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIDs) on canine thyroid function are summarized here. Expand
Clinical classification of canine aggression
Abstract Complete case histories from 120 dogs referred because of aggression were reviewed to determine what trends, if any, were present. Sixty percent of the animals were male, with the remainingExpand
