Fluorescent bone labeling of coyotes with demethylchlortetracycline



Fluorescent bone labeling of coyotes with demethylchlortetracycline



J Wildlife Manage 31(2): 317-321



Demethylchlortetracycline (DMCT) Is an antibiotic which chelates with calcium ions and induces a characteristic golden-yellow fluorescence in bones and teeth. A single oral dose of 10 mg^kg of body weight was administered to 11 captive coyotes (Canis latrans). Portions of bone and tooth dentin from these animals fluoresced under ultraviolet light. Gross fluorescence was most apparent on the mandible, with lesser amounts on the pelvis, femur, and tibia. Intensity and quantity of fluorescence was greatest in younger animals. The degree of fluorescence was similar in animals killed at 2 months and 5 months posttreatment, indicating that the compound is effective as a longterm label.
