PANEL DISCUSSION DESCRIPTION
Intoxication in dogs and cats is a common cause for emergency veterinary visits. When they present, extensive diagnostic and therapeutic measures are required. Accurate diagnosis is the key to approaching a potential poisoning case. Such a diagnosis can allow for adequate treatment of the poisoned animal and can prevent additional cases.
This panel discussion brings together a group of internationally renowned multidisciplinary specialists to provide an approach to the acutely poisoned and critically ill patient. There will be special focus on the current knowledge of the effective use of decontamination procedures, the benefits and risks for intravenous lipid emulsion, continuous renal replacement therapy and blood purification techniques, the availability of antidotes for poisoned dogs and cats, and monitoring and supportive care for patients with respiratory abnormalities. Furthermore, exposure to marijuana, anticoagulant rodenticides, household medications and other drugs will be discussed.
