After a pet has been poisoned, quick thinking can save their life, which is why it’s so important for your clinic to have the correct information when presented with an emergency patient. This presentation will cover stabilizing treatments for poisoned patients and common situations and symptoms that require immediate intervention before knowing the toxicity. Toxicity cases from the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center will be provided throughout the presentation as real-world examples of the information discussed.
Understand techniques and treatments used in the immediate stabilization of patients affected by toxins
Recognize common symptoms and signs that warrant the immediate intervention of treatment regardless of the toxicity
Become familiar with initial treatment steps using actual toxicity cases from the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center
