Course Description:
Companion animals are curious creatures and with this curiosity, poison emergencies may occur. To help our veterinarians diagnose and treat these cases efficiently, the team needs to understand the basics of toxicology. This course will provide information to help participants understand basic fundamentals of toxicology, misconceptions, prevention, recording an adequate history for common poison emergencies that occur in dogs and cats. This course will also offer an overview of common toxins including decontamination and basic management therefore allowing participants to better assist clients and veterinarians in the event of a toxicology emergency. 

This course consists of four (4) Real Time Sessions of ninety (90) minutes each, supplemental library materials, interactive message board discussions, a mandatory end-of-course test, and may include online multiple choice quizzes (after each Real Time Session). Successful completion (scoring 80% or better) on the end-of-course test is required to earn a certificate of completion for the course.
