Abstract

The emetics apomorphine hydrochloride and emetine dihydrochloride were tested on Weddell seals (Leptonychotes weddellii) to obtain stomach contents for dietary studies. The drugs prostaglandin F2a, carbachol, and hydergine, which have emetic side effects were also used. None of the drugs induced regurgitation. Possible reasons for this are discussed.
