Roger W. Gfeller, DVM and Shawn P. Messonnier, DVM
This time-saving, pocket-size guide offers a thorough understanding of toxicology that is essential to diagnosing and treating the complex problems resulting from toxin ingestion, a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in animals. The 2nd edition covers patient assessment and treatment techniques, as well as information on over 100 categories of toxic agents. Discussions of each agent include its uses, mechanism, pathophysiology, clinical signs, diagnosis, common products containing the agent, and acute and long-term treatment. A new avian section makes this edition even more comprehensive and clinically useful.
