Are you a veterinarian or veterinary professional? Join us for a free CE on Top 10 errors to avoid in your poisoned patients!

When that poisoned dog walks into your clinic, are you automatically reaching for apomorphine and activated charcoal? Think it’s okay to use hydrogen peroxide as an emetic for cats? Confident that you know how to treat that poisoned patient?

Join us for a free, RACE-approved, 1 hour lecture, where we’ll review the top 10 most common errors seen with toxicology. Some common errors made with poisoned patients include:

• Inducing emesis in symptomatic patients
• Not knowing the contraindications for emesis induction (e.g., hydrocarbons, corrosive agents, etc.)
• Using emetic agents that are no longer the standard of care (e.g., syrup of ipecac, salt, etc.)
• Underutilizing intravenous fluid therapy in your poisoned patient
• Not stocking your toxicology tool box appropriately
• Misunderstanding the significance of half-lives of drugs
