Title: Hematological Horrors! The Blood Thirsty Poisons
Date: Tuesday, October 25, 2022
Time: 12:00 PM Central Daylight Time
This webinar will discuss toxins or poisons that may result in anemia in our companion animal patients. Using a case-based approach, we will delve into toxins that may either affect red blood cell health, red blood cell production, or result in bleeding or coagulopathy thereby affecting red blood cell volumes in our patients. In evaluating the expected clinical presentation of these patients, we will develop a list of differential diagnoses from a toxicological perspective, discuss diagnostic tools to investigate such underlying causes, and consider treatment courses mst appropriate to both the toxin and poisoned patient.
