The aggressive behavior encountered in the feline patient, represents a major problem in the approach and care handling for this patient, hard quest for a complete clinical and neurological evaluation, also in applying some investigation methods and running a full internal and external set of analysis: blood workouts, ultrasounds, X-rays, MRIs. In this study, we searched for triggers, causes and effects that give the aggressive state of the feline patient and we found that toxoplasmosis, hyperthyroidism, epilepsy, dental pain, arthritis, discomfort from coinfections with other bacteria, viruses, parasites, trauma, lack of sensitive reactions and cognitive response malfunctioning in geriatrics, could all contribute for this behavior. In this comparative study of human, feline and other mammals with latent infection with T. gondii, we found common aggression traits presented in some psychiatry studies linked to the human latent infection, as well as in feline and other mammals brain studies with toxoplasmosis confirmed with different laboratory technics.
