Abstract

The effects of imipramine on spontaneous locomotor activity, alimentary motivated behavior and socio-emotional behavior were investigated in five dogs. In all dogs the main imipramine-bound effect was the decrease of locomotor activity in the open field. In four behaviorally normal dogs, performance of other tests was only slightly affected by imipramine treatment. An improvement in performance of various tasks and socio-emotional reactions was observed only in one neurotic dog.
