Pet Poison Helpline of Minneapolis and Veterinary Pet Insurance of Brea, Calif., will be sponsoring a free webinar for veterinarians and veterinary staff on the top common toxic substances in small animals on Tuesday, April 12, from noon to 1 p.m. CDT.
Veterinary professionals are constantly bombarded by pets ingesting common poisons in the household, from over-the-counter products and prescription human medications to kitchen toxins and poisonous plants, according to Pet Poison Helpline, a 24/7 animal poison control service.
The webinar will cover the 10 most common toxic substances that Pet Poison Helpline gets calls about and how to recognize and treat poisoned patients.
Justine Lee, DVM, Dipl. ACVECC, association director of Pet Poison Helpline, will be the presenter.
The course meets the requirements for one hour of continuing education credit, according to the sponsors.
