Poisoning incidents are not uncommonly seen in small animal practice, and nurses are often the first point of contact to triage and provide up to date advice for these often time critical cases. However, with so many potential small animal poisons and varying management strategies, it can be hard to feel confident to advise and nurse these patients.

This seven part learning series with Eleanor Haskey provides nurses with a sound knowledge of the general concepts that can be employed when approaching small animal toxicology cases, before moving on to cover more specific management of common poisons, focusing on the role nurses can play in both triage and management of these cases.

N.B This learning series was taken from a course aimed at veterinary nurses, however veterinary surgeons may find the information helpful when dealing with toxicology cases.
