Abstract

Providing a ready reference for the initial triage, collection of diagnostic samples, and management of a poisoning case, Small Animal Toxicology Essentials focuses on the most common poisons encountered by companion animals. From prevention to evaluation, monitoring, and treatment, the book is a guide for veterinary technicians to differentiate between significant and insignificant exposures and effectively manage animal poisonings. Emphasizing clinical signs, differential diagnoses, and case management, the book begins with the principles of veterinary toxicology, such as terminology, history-taking, and decontamination. The second half of the book is devoted to specific toxicants, including plants, metals, drugs, and household poisons. A companion website at www.wiley.com/go/poppenga provides review questions in Word and color images available for download into PowerPoint. Small Animal Toxicology Essentials is a useful resource for veterinary technicians, especially those with a interest in emergency and critical care, and veterinary technician students, as well as practicing veterinarians looking for an introduction to toxicology.
