Description

Veterinary Toxicology, 2nd Edition, is a unique single reference that teaches the basic principles of veterinary toxicology and builds upon these principles to offer an essential clinical resource for those practicing in the field. This new edition brings together insights from qualified and well-experienced authorities across all areas of veterinary toxicology to provide an authoritative and in-depth look at all facets of veterinary toxicology, including target organ toxicity, melamine and cyanuric acid, toxicogenomics, chemical terrorism and nanoparticles.

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. It is thoroughly updated with new chapters and the latest coverage of topics not tackled in any previous books such as target organ toxicity, radiation and radioactive materials, FDA regulatory issues, and ethics in veterinary toxicology. There are also expanded discussions on international topics such as epidemiology of animal poisonings and regulatory guidelines and poisonous plants in Europe. Problem solving strategies are offered for treatment.

This volume will be of interest to practitioners, professors and students of veterinary medicine and veterinary toxicology, poison control centers, marine biologists, environmentalists and animal scientists.

Review Text

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

Review quote

"A lot of in-depth information in 1 text, including some not readily available elsewhere. A number of topics included are contemporary, which increases its value for toxicologists who are not specifically veterinary toxicologists." - Marion Ehrich, PhD, DABT, in Journal of American Veterinary Medical Association

"A useful source of information for the veterinary clinician, student, and toxicologist. A nice addition to any veterinarian's library and is well worth the price." - The Canadian Veterinary Journal "...this is the one text needed to thoroughly prepare future veterinarians on the newest approaches for diagnosing poisoning cases in all animals." - Paul A.
