Diagnose and determine treatment for toxic exposures in small animals with this quick reference! Small Animal Toxicology, 3rd Edition covers hundreds of potentially toxic substances, providing the information you need to manage emergency treatment and prevent poisonings in companion animals. To help you identify an unknown poison, this guide provides a list of potential toxins based on clinical signs or symptoms. It also includes a NEW color insert with 85 full-color photographs of toxic plants and of lesions associated with various poisonings. Written by respected veterinarian Michael E. Peterson and board-certified veterinary toxicologist Patricia A. Talcott, along with a team of expert contributors, this edition covers a wide variety of topics including toxicodynamics, toxicokinetics, effective history taking, recognizing clinical signs of toxic exposures, managing emergencies, and supportive care of the poisoned patient.
"In preface, the authors indicate their remit was to produce a valuable aid to the clinician in practice and also to provide a textbook for veterinary students. Thus the earlier sections are obviously directed at setting the scene and outlining the fundamentals of toxicology...For the most part, UK and European users will find the book extremely valuable...The latest edition revision will certainly be on my shelf and no doubt, end up looking as battered and loved as the earlier editions."Veterinary Record, May 2013
"Written for students and vets in practice, this toxicology guide provides all you need to know to deal with a case of poisoning...Whether based on clinical or toxic signs, the practitioner will get the best advice. Even if we all wish to never need such a book, no doubt it will be extremely useful one day."Tomorrow's Vets, April 2014
