Results – All 3 TRH doses induced a significant TSH response (0.01 mg/kg, P = 0.0055; 0.05 mg/kg, P = 0.0017; 0.1 mg/kg, P = 0.0001). There was no statistical difference among the different TRH doses in stimulation of TSH (Figure 1). Only the lowest dose of TRH (0.01 mg/kg) induced an increase in serum T4 concentration (P= 0.03). Administration of lower TRH doses (0.01 and 0.05 mg/kg) caused less side effects (1/6 cats) than did the highest concentration (0.1 mg/kg; 3/6 cats).
