Veterinary Toxicology is a unique single reference that teaches the basic principles of veterinary toxicology to any student at the DVM, MS or PhD level and will continue to serve as a clinical reference for practicing veterinary toxicologists, poison control centers, marine biologists, environmentalists, and animal scientists. While most comparable texts are primarily directed toward the field of human toxicology, this is the one text needed to thoroughly prepare future veterinarians on the newest approaches for diagnosing poisoning cases in all animals from chemicals and plants of a diverse nature as a result of inadvertent, accidental, or malicious intents. Many chapters are provided on topics not covered in any previous books such as target organ toxicity, radiation and radioactive materials, FDA regulatory issues, and ethics in veterinary toxicology. Selected for inclusion in Doody's Core Titles 2013, an essential collection development tool for health sciences libraries New chapters covering important and timely topics such as melamine and cyanuric acid, toxicogenomics, toxic gases and veterinary medical geology Expanded look at international topics, such as epidemiology of animal poisonings, regulatory guidelines and poisonous plants in Europe Heavily contributed book with chapters written by qualified and well-experienced authorities across all areas of veterinary toxicology Problem solving strategies are offered for treatment as well as in-depth knowledge of the basic mechanisms of veterinary toxicology

Editorial Reviews

"A lot of in-depth information in 1 text, including some not readily available elsewhere. A number of topics included are contemporary, which increases its value for toxicologists who are not specifically veterinary toxicologists." - Marion Ehrich, PhD, DABT, in Journal of American Veterinary Medical Association "A useful source of information for the veterinary clinician, student, and toxicologist. A nice addition to any veterinarian's library and is well worth the price." - The Canadian Veterinary Journal "...this is the one text needed to thoroughly prepare future veterinarians on the newest approaches for diagnosing poisoning cases in all animals." - Paul A. Eubig, DVM, MS, DABT (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine), in DOODY'S REVIEWS
