This course will cover some of the most common exotic species-related calls that we take at APCC, involving reptiles, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, and more. We will discuss both common and unique toxin ingestions in exotic species and discuss important species differences between dogs and cats. We’ll also cover the clinical management of toxin ingestions.
There will be an in-depth discussion of specific toxins, including but not limited to:
Rabbits: Methylxanthines, Fipronil
Guinea pigs: Bromethalin
Lizards: Monarch butterflies, fireflies
Birds: Avocado, Teflon
Feel more comfortable and confident managing toxin exposures in exotic species with the guidance of APCC.
Gain a working knowledge of unique species differences when it comes to toxin exposures.
Learn about triage and initial management of toxin ingestions in exotic species.

Dr. Carrie Daly graduated from the University of Minnesota in 2009. She has had an eclectic career since then, having lived and worked in Hong Kong, Minnesota, Oregon, and now Colorado. She has experience in toxicology, emergency medicine, shelter medicine, and wildlife medicine. She loves teaching and advocating for veterinary practitioner wellness: you can find her on atdove teaching about exotics handling, as well as on Montel William’s podcast Free Thinking discussing mental health within the veterinary industry and the experience of working as an emergency veterinarian through a pandemic.
Carrie adores all animals, but is particularly fond of opinionated older felines with plenty of cattitude! Carrie has 3 human children, as well as a goofy dog named Mabel, a lovely cat named Meredith, a very spicy cat named Harriet Lilith Nicklenut (who was acquired as a stray on vacation when she conned the whole family into believing she was a gentle creature), and a leopard gecko named Sunny. Lastly, Carrie is a hobby beekeeper with 2 active hives. For these reasons, Carrie considers herself to be both a manager and a purveyor of chaos! In her free time, she enjoys outdoor time with her kiddos, reading, writing poetry, running trail marathons/ultramarathons, international travel, snowboarding, unsuccessful attempts at meditation, and above all else - a good long nap.
