Selegiline may directly scavenge free radicals and enhance scavenging enzymes such as catalase and superoxide dismutase. 29 Selegiline also has neuroprotective effects on dopaminergic, noradrenergic, and cholinergic neurons. 30 Some dogs improve within the ﬁrst 2 weeks of receiving selegiline, whereas a few dogs do not show improvement until the second month.
