The Toxicology of Human Medications

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.

All of our webinars are free, RACE-approved and good for one hour of CE for  veterinary medical professionals. Courses meet the requirements of RACE hours of continuing education credit for veterinary technicians in jurisdictions which recognize AAVSB’s RACE approval. 

Please note that if you attend a live webinar a CE quiz is not required, but if you watch a recorded webinar you will be required to take a quiz at the end of the session in order to receive your CE certificate.   

This webinar has been approved by CAWA for 1 CE unit.
