WEBINAR: The GRAS is Not Always Greener: Providing Toxin-free Drug Therapy to Animal Patients

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians often are the last line of defense in recognizing and preventing potential animal poisoning. Unfortunately, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians traditionally are trained only in human toxicology. To provide competent and confident pharmaceutical care to non-human species, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians must possess a working knowledge of species-specific susceptibilities to toxins. Factors that affect the risk of toxicity vary greatly among species; they include (but are not limited to) differences in absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination; anatomical characteristics such as the inability to vomit; age and size of the animal; and seasonal and environmental influences.

This presentation will review drugs, excipients, and foods that may be toxic when given to dogs and cats.

The American College of Apothecaries (ACA) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education. ACA has accredited this program for 1.0 contact hour (0.1 CEUs) of continuing education credit for pharmacists and technicians
