The Toxicology of Human Medications

Enroll in our RACE-approved online course to see the webinar recording.

The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center reports that human medication exposures accounted for the most calls to APCC veterinarians in 2016.  Join us for a review of common clinical signs and treatment approaches for a variety of common human medication exposures, including:

  • Acetaminophen
  • Amphetamines
  • NSAIDs
  • Serotonin

Small-practice veterinarians and veterinary technicians will benefit from this 60-minute webinar.

The orignal live webinar was RACE-approved and good for one hour of CE for individual veterinary medical professionals.  If you'd like to receive RACE CE, register and complete our online course which includes the webinar recording and slides.
