The BSAVA/VPIS Poisons Triage Tool presents thumbnail sketches of pertinent information relating to poisoning of small animal pets by commonly encountered substances, plants and other items. For each agent, information is given on toxicology, clinical effects, appropriate first aid and subsequent management and prognosis (see sample content). This is to enable veterinary surgeons and their staff to give appropriate guidance, over the telephone or in person, to clients that suspect their animals may have been poisoned. A 'Traffic Light' system indicates the level of concern and urgency.
This resource is the result of an exciting collaborative venture between BSAVA and the Veterinary Poisons Information Service.
