Six hundred forty-one dogs with clinical signs consistent with canine cognitive dysfunction syndrome (CDS) were treated orally with selegiline hydrochloride at 0.5 to 1.0 mg/kg once daily for 60 days. Response to selegiline treatment on days 30 and 60 were similar. On day 60, 77.2% of dogs showed an overall improvement; response to treatment by clinical sign ranged from 67.8% (activity or sleep/wake cycle) to 77.8% (disorientation and interaction with family members). All dogs enrolled in the study were monitored for possible adverse events; diarrhea (4...

This unusual case presents a rare opportunity to examine the relationships between two important endocrine diseases in a nonhuman primate. A male, 14-year-old rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta) was diagnosed with hyperadrenocorticism and concurrent diabetes mellitus...

Treatment with l-deprenyl results in clinical and endocrinologic improvement (partial to complete) in approximately 83% of dogs, with improvement noted within the first 1 to 2 months of therapy. The safety profile of l-deprenyl is excellent, especially in light of the fact that the majority of patients are elderly...
