Key Features

  • Selected for inclusion in Doody's Core Titles 2013, an essential collection development tool for health sciences libraries
  • New chapters covering important and timely topics such as melamine and cyanuric acid, toxicogenomics, toxic gases and veterinary medical geology
  • Expanded look at international topics, such as epidemiology of animal poisonings, regulatory guidelines and poisonous plants in Europe
  • Heavily contributed book with chapters written by qualified and well-experienced authorities across all areas of veterinary toxicology
  • Problem solving strategies are offered for treatment as well as in-depth knowledge of the basic mechanisms of veterinary toxicology

Description

Veterinary Toxicology is a unique single reference that teaches the basic principles of veterinary toxicology to any student at the DVM, MS or PhD level and will continue to serve as a clinical reference for practicing veterinary toxicologists, poison control centers, marine biologists, environmentalists, and animal scientists. While most comparable texts are primarily directed toward the field of human toxicology, this is the one text needed to thoroughly prepare future veterinarians on the newest approaches for diagnosing poisoning cases in all animals from chemicals and plants of a diverse nature as a result of inadvertent, accidental, or malicious intents. Many chapters are provided on topics not covered in any previous books such as target organ toxicity, radiation and radioactive materials, FDA regulatory issues, and ethics in veterinary toxicology.

Readership

Practitioners, professors and students of veterinary medicine and veterinary toxicology, poison control centers, marine biologists, environmentalists and animal scientists.

Quotes and reviews

Praise for the 2nd Edition:

"The stated purpose of the second edition of Veterinary Toxicology: Basic and Clinical Principles is to serve as a comprehensive, expert-authored resource for toxicologists and other scientists and for use as a textbook in the classroom. The book covers the wide breadth of veterinary toxicology with exceptional depth. Topics range from the history of veterinary toxicology to nanoparticles, pesticides, metals, laws, regulatory considerations, diagnostic testing, and plant and environmental toxicology. The authors do an exceptional job of addressing pharmacokinetics and mechanisms of action in detail. Principles of analytic toxicology and sample submission are adequately covered.

 

Agents encountered as a result of natural and man-made disasters are a key focus of the reference.  The text does not contain in-depth information in the area of human pharmaceuticals, which is a common source of exposure for family pets.  Treatment details and differential diagnosis lists are limited.  Clearly, the book delivers on its purpose as a key reference for scientists and students, covering the complex topic of veterinary toxicology in a comprehensive, well-designed format.  Although this book is a tremendous addition to any library, veterinarians, other scientists, and students who seek details on the varied and complex topic of veterianry toxicology will find this reference a must-have book." -Reviewed by Steven Hansen, DVM, MS, MBA, DABVT, in the Journal of American Veterinary Medical Association

 

Praise for the 1st Edition:

"A unique single reference that teaches the basic principles of veterinary toxicology to any student at the DVM, MS or PhD level and will continue to serve as a clinical reference for practicing veterinary toxicologists, poison control centers, marine biologists, environmentalists, and animal scientists. While most comparable texts are primarily directed toward the field of human toxicology, this is the one text needed to thoroughly prepare future veterinarians on the newest approaches for diagnosing poisoning cases in all animals from chemicals and plants of a diverse nature as a result of inadvertent, accidental, or malicious intents. Many chapters are provided on topics not covered in any previous books such as target organ toxicity, radiation and radioactive materials, FDA regulatory issues, and ethics in veterinary toxicology...many newer topics including chemicals of terrorism, estrogenic toxicants, and nanoparticles are included. Overall, the information provided is well organized and comprehensive...generous and relevant references at the end of each chapter allow the opportunity to further pursue each topic.

This book can be considered a cornerstone upon which a deeper understanding of the issues and individual toxicants in veterinary toxicology can be based. The topics covered are of interest to not only toxicologists and researchers, but also to clinicians who do not have an extensive background in toxicology. This book is a fine addition to any veterinary professional's library, but it is important to realize that after becoming familiar with this material, the readers' interests will then determine if more focused, additional resources are needed."
- Paul A. Eubig, DVM, MS, DABT (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine), in DOODY'S REVIEWS

"The book is reasonably priced, rich and rewarding and I can warmly recommend it as a useful reference book to all practicing toxicologists."
- Roy Forster, CIT, France - The British Toxicology Society Newsletter
