Parasites of the laboratory woodchuck (Marmota monax)



Parasites of the laboratory woodchuck (Marmota monax)



Laboratory Animal Science 36(3): 298-302



The parasite burden of captive and colony-born woodchucks maintained in laboratory animal facilities was determined and compared to woodchucks recently trapped. Mf of Ackertia marmotae in blood or dermis were most commonly observed in trapped woodchucks. There was a linear decrease in woodchucks positive for mf after introduction in the laboratory colony, but even after 39 months, 53% were positive. Microfilaraemia or microfilariderma were never observed in colony born woodchucks.
