d-CON, one of the most common rodenticides in the United States, is transitioning from anticoagulant active ingredients to cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3). Rodenticides are amongst the most common toxins ingested by cats and dogs, so it’s imperative that veterinary professionals be aware of this change and understand its medical implications. Join us to learn about the history behind the change and how to diagnose and treat cholecalciferol exposure in dogs and cats. We’ll also provide a brief treatment and diagnostics review of anticoagulant and bromethalin rodenticides.
