Abstract

Objective-To evaluate fluoxetine for the treatment of owner-directed dominance aggression in dogs. Design-Prospective study. Animals-9 dogsof various breeds, ages, and either sex determined to have owner-directed dominance aggression. Procedure-Placebo and fluoxetine (1 mg/kg of body weight) were compared for the treatment of owner-directed dominance aggression in a single-blind crossover study. Owners were instructed to record aggressive and nonaggressive responses of their dogs daily on a canine-overt aggression chart for the 5-week duration of the study. Total aggression scores (linear and geometric) were calculated for each week of the study. The frequency of individual responses was also analyzed independently. Results-Fluoxetine resulted in a significant (P = 0.01) reduction in owner-directed dominance aggression after 3weeks of treatment. No particular aggressive response accounted for the overall reduction in aggression. Clinical Implications-fluoxetine may be useful in the management of dominance aggression in dogs.
