SUMMARY The pH profiles and transit in fasted male beagle dogs were studied using the IntelliCap drug delivery and monitoring system. The IntelliCap capsule measures pH and temperature while passing the gastro-intestinal tract. Data curves are analyzed retrospectively to determine the gastric residence, small bowel, and total transit times. The values from several studies with a variety of experimental designs are collected and analyzed. Selected examples of atypical curves are also illustrated…

How does dietary particle size affect carnivore gastrointestinal transit: A dog model
TLDR
Results show that the difference between capsule measurements and TiO2 is larger for the fine than the coarse diet suggesting that the capsule becomes more accurate when dietary particle size approaches marker size.
Oral Administration of Zolpidem Tartrate in an Abuse-deterrent Formulation Versus an Immediate Release Formulation in Beagle Dogs
TLDR
The pharmacokinetic analysis demonstrated that immediate-release tablet administration generated much higher plasma concentration when compared with geopolymer pellets administration for zolpidem tartrate, and the geopolymers formulation prolonged the time of drug release.
