Abstract

The diverse information needs of veterinary toxicologists can be illustrated by using veterinary clinical toxicology as an example. Veterinary clinical toxicologists are concerned with exposure assessment of many animal species to a bewildering array of potentially toxic chemicals (both naturally occurring and synthetic), investigation of animal deaths believed to be associated with toxicant exposure, selection of appropriate samples and tests to assist in reaching a diagnosis and the interpretation of analytical data derived from such testing. Also, they serve as an information resource for a diverse clientele seeking toxicity information to be used in a preventative fashion. For example, it is not unusual for veterinary toxicologists to receive inquiries concerning the potential toxicity of a plant found in the environment of an animal. Unfortunately, in many situations, there is little toxicity information available for a given toxicant that is specific for the species of animal involved. As a result, veterinary clinical toxicologists often integrate toxicity data from multiple sources to make informed "weight of evidence" judgments about the potential hazard associated with the presence of a toxicant in the environment or the clinical relevance of a toxicant exposure. This chapter lists some of the more important and easily assessable sources.
