The effects of prefrontal lobotomy on aggressive behavior in dogs


The effects of prefrontal lobotomy on aggressive behavior in dogs



Cornell Veterinarian 64(2): 201-216



ISSN/ISBN: 0010-8901

PMID: 4207830

Prefrontal lobotomies were successfully performed in ten dogs and one cat in an effort to correct aggressive behaviour. Long-term postoperative observation revealed improvement in four of six Malamutes which had previously been aggressive towards other dogs. In four of five household pets with histories of attacking people, there was notable behavioural improvement while they were housed at the clinic.
