In 15 dogs with pituitary-dependent hyperadrenocorticism (PDH) the basal prolactin concentrations (means of 6 determinations; range 2.8-24.7 micrograms/l) were significantly higher than those of 23 healthy control dogs (0.9-10.5 micrograms/l). In five dogs with hyperadrenocorticism due to adrenocortical tumour (ATH) the prolactin concentrations were also significantly elevated, but still significantly lower than the values of the dogs with PDH. The prolactin concentrations of the dogs with PDH… CONTINUE READING
