#25157 Crab-eating Macaque

#25157 was acquired and entered quarantine at CRPRC on September 6, 1989. Her age was estimated to be 2 years. She had been wild-caught. Quarantine is generally an experience of isolation and repeated examination.

One week after her arrival she was paralyzed with ketamine, had blood drawn, had a stool sample taken, and was tattooed. They began supplementing her diet with a multi-vitamin with iron.

Six days later, on September 19, 1989, she was examined again. She was found to have an "infantile/small" rectum and a "small uterus". She was anemic. Her overall condition was reported as "excellent".

A week later she was injected with ketamine and had additional blood drawn.

From October 10, 1989 through November 21, 1989, she was paralyzed with ketamine and examined four times.

#25157 was paralyzed and examined on December 8, 1989. The report from a reproductive examination noted that she had extensive folds in her vaginal canal. She had two loose teeth removed. She was released from quarantine and reported to be in "good" health.

April 16, 1990: #25157 was taken to the infirmary. Her left arm had been injured when she got it stuck in the bars of her cage. Ice was applied for ten minutes as a treatment for the swelling.

June 15, 1990: again taken to infirmary for swelling in her left arm caused from having gotten it stuck in the cage bars. Her arm was swollen to nearly twice its normal size. Her arm was treated with DMSO for ten minutes.

Exactly one month later, on July 15, it was noted that her arm was injured again from having gotten it stuck in the cage bars the day before. No treatment was administered.

From January 2, 1990, through May 26, 1993, #25157 was paralyzed with ketamine and had blood drawn a dozen times.

On June 27, 1993, she gave birth to a single infant, #27822.

July 7, 1993, she was paralyzed and examined.

July 16, 1993, she was paralyzed and examined.

July 28, 1993, she was paralyzed and examined.

August 13, 1993, she was paralyzed and examined.

On September 9, 1993, #25157 and her infant were moved to a new cage.

September 16, 1993, she was paralyzed and examined.

On October 5, 1993, she was paralyzed and her four-month old infant was taken from her and moved to a separate location.

October 25, 1993, she was moved to a new cage where she remained for almost nine months.

July 6, 1994, she was moved again.

August 19, 1994, moved again.

Four years later, on July 19, 1998 she gave premature birth to infant #31140. #31140 was cold and had difficulty breathing. #25157 was tied down to an examination table and had blood clots removed from her vagina. An I.V. was started. She pulled her arms free and escaped from the table but was subdued with ketamine and strapped to a "cross" and the I.V. restarted. She was eventually moved back to her home cage. She was reported as being underweight and anemic. No mention of her infant is made, so #31140 must have been permanently removed from her.

The final entries in #25157"s records show that she had received an injury to her eye and the skin above her eyes in April of 2000. Her current disposition is unknown.

Over the eleven years she has been at CRPRC, #25157 has been moved to nine new cages. She has had two babies. She has been chemically restrained with ketamine at least 70 times. She has had blood drawn at least 62 times. She was treated for malaria. She has had many injuries, and has been periodically underweight and anemic. She was apparently used in one contraceptive study.
