Pathological potential of intraperitoneal transmitter implants in beavers



Pathological potential of intraperitoneal transmitter implants in beavers



Journal of Wildlife Management 51(3): 605-606



Beavers (Castor canadensis) with transmitter implanted free in the peritoneal cavity for a period of 2 weeks to 28 months were examined for pathology due to the implant. Nine of 10 beavers necropsied tolerated the implants with no apparent pathology. After 6 weeks, all implants became encapsulated in tight, necrotic fibrous tissue originating from the omentum. Adhesion between the implant capsule and peritoneal structures occurred in 3 animals, with 1 dying from intestinal obstruction.
