Abstract

Veterinary toxicology is a constantly evolving field. The authors use the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center’s medical record database to examine recent trends in veterinary toxicology/animal poisoning incidents received from 2002 to 2010. The demographics of animals exposed to potentially harmful substances, the types of substances ingested, changes/emerging trends in substance exposures, and trends in therapies used to treat exposures are discussed.
