“The sheer variety of toxic elements that small pets can be exposed to both in the home and outside is eye–opening. Everything from bread dough to batteries to, depending on where you live, bufo toads can rapidly prove fatal. This book has been designed to help veterinary clinicians correctly diagnose and begin treating such cases in the shortest amount of time possible, and as such, it features a very clean and readable layout for quick accessibility.” (Book News Inc., February 2011)

This packs in key details on the diagnosis, therapy and prevention of toxicoses and is arranged by major categories of toxicants to aid in rapid diagnosis by poisonings.
