This revised and expanded reference is a valuable aid for the practicing veterinary clinician in diagnosing and determining treatment for toxic exposures in small animals, and for veterinary students as a supplement to their classroom instruction. It contains chapters addressings nontraditional areas of toxicology not covered in conventional toxicology texts. It also covers areas of toxicology which seem basic but are rarely discussed, such as taking a toxicological history, establishing a minimum database, providing supportive care, and managing emergency treatment of the poisoned patient. The book is organized into three sections, including 20 new chapters and new topics such as grapes and raisins, lilies, "Christmas time" plants, mercury, and accidental poisoning in non-traditional pets.
  • New two-color design makes the book more esthetically pleasing and allows for quick retrieval of information
  • Toxic Plant Information Summary tables make treatments for plant intoxications easy to find
  • Toxic Plant Quick Reference Based on Clinical Signs tables are included, to support small-animal veterinarians in cases of potential toxic plant ingestion
  • Summary charts at the beginning of each chapter in the Specific Toxicants section contain bulleted lists with clear-cut information on the specific toxicant, the clinical signs, and prognosis
  • A comprehensive review of all known potentially toxic substances is provided, from A (acetaminophen) to Z (zinc), including the very latest on grape and raisin toxicity - making this the most up-to-date and thorough text in this field
  • 45 different experts contribute to this book, all from the field of veterinary toxicology andmedicine
  • 20 new chapters have been added
  • New topics include a list of toxicants affecting body systems, management of toxins in pregnancy, diagnostic toxicology, bacterial toxins, and cosmetic/toilet articles
  • Snake-bite injuries are treated in two separate, expanded chapters: Pit Vipers and Coral Snakes
  • Section on pharmaceuticals includes bromides, anticonvulsants, tricycle antidepressants, monoamine oxidize inhibitors, B-adrenergic toxicities, and vitamins A and D
  • Additional specific toxicants are covered, including Amitraz, hydramethylon, ethanol, mercury, toad toxins, poisonous frogs, salamanders, newts and venomous arthropods

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In preface, the authors indicate their remit was to produce a valuable aid to the clinican in practice and also to provide a textbook for veterinary students. Thus the earlier sections are obivously directed at setting the sceneand outlining the fundamentals of toxicology...For the most part, UK and European users will findthe book extremely valuable...The latest edition revision will certainly be on my shelf and nodoubt, end up looking as battered and loved as the earlier editions."

Veterinary Record, May 2013

"Written for students and vets in practice, this toxicology guide provides all you need to know to deal with a case of poisoning...Whether based on clinical or toxic signs, the practitioner will get the bext advice. Even if we all wish to never need such a book, no doubt it will be extremely useful one day."

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Paul A Eubig, DVM, MS, PhD, Dipl. ABT(University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This book covers potentially toxic substances for companion animals, providing information necessary to manage emergency treatment and to prevent poisonings.
Purpose: This update is most welcome, given the new clinical toxicology information that has accrued since the previous edition in 2006.
Audience: It is written both for practitioners who want more than bullet points of information and for veterinary students who want to learn more about the toxicoses touched on in their curriculum.
Features: The book is divided into four sections, the first of which covers general management of poisoning cases and resources available to the practitioner, while the second includes information relevant for specific populations, such as pediatric and geriatric patients and exotic species. The third section has a wealth of information on miscellaneous indoor toxicants, herbal products, and house plants. The final section covers a wide range of potentially harmful substances in its 56 chapters. A real strength of this book is that the editors have enlisted specialists and toxicologists to write about topics in which they are authorities. Another strength is that the book makes an effort to provide information on the amount of a toxicant that can cause harm, which is not always included in clinical toxicology book. This is helpful for practitioners making decisions when faced with treating a toxicosis. Also of note is the comprehensive index. One shortcoming is the limited information on potentially harmful pharmaceuticals. Some, such as NSAIDs and barbiturates, are included, while others, such as baclofen, albuterol, and phenylpropanolamine, are not. To be fair, inclusion of extensive information on pharmaceuticals could easily increase the size of the book by 50% or more.
Assessment: Given the amount of information it contains, the helpful chapter organization, and the large number of toxicants it covers, this book is a very useful addition to the reference libraries of practitioners and students alike. For those who already own the second edition, the choice is harder. Most new chapters fall in the first two sections of the book, with the exception of the chapter on xylitol toxicosis. So for second edition owners, the new edition is helpful if they want to further their knowledge on approaching and managing poisoning cases. Regardless, this is the best general book currently available on small animal toxicology.
