Inefficacy of selegiline in treatment of canine pituitary-dependent hyperadrenocorticism
JA BRADDOCK, DB CHURCH, ID ROBERTSON and ADJ WATSON
Australian Veterinary Journal, 2004;82:272-277

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15181926

http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/j...45516/abstract

Quote:
Conclusions: Selegiline was confirmed as a safe drug with no important side effects in dogs but was not effective for treating canine PDH at the dose used in this study. Due to the availability of other more reliable treatments, it cannot be recommended for treating this disease in dogs. In some dogs, selegiline may have an effect in increasing the activity levels and general alertness, possibly reflecting dopaminergic effects on the brain unrelated to treatment of PDH. It is conceivable that dogs with known pars intermedia tumours could respond better to selegiline, but premortem identification of tumour location in animals is not possible at present with imaging modalities available.

Here is a link to the full text of this 2011 research study published by Dr. Edward C. Feldman of University of California at Davis:

"Evaluation of twice-daily lower-dose trilostane treatment administered orally in dogs with naturally occurring hyperadrenocorticism"


Here is a link to a more streamlined summary of Dr. Feldman's key reasearch findings:
