Veterinary Toxicology

Veterinary toxicology has grown into a multifaceted discipline that utilizes many diverse sources of toxicological information. Veterinary toxicologists can be involved in basic toxicology research, clinical toxicology, regulatory toxicology, chemical risk assessment and chemical food safety in private, academic, clinical, government, and commercial settings, among others. Like many areas of science, veterinary toxicology information is being generated at rates much higher than most professionals can access it and incorporate its principles into practice. Veterinary toxicologists need access to a wide variety of information sources to remain abreast of current toxicologic information and to make sound clinical choices. The internet has provided the veterinary toxicologist with a valuable tool to access both historical and cutting-edge research information in a timely and cost-effective manner.
