TESTIMONIALS

Dr Tim Hopkins - Small Animal Specialist Hospital (SASH), North Ryde.

“The Australian Animal Poisons Centre has enabled our frontline emergency teams to excel in the treatment of poisonings, toxicities and envenomations. The advice we receive from the AAPC poisons specialists is timely, comprehensive and authoritative. As an emergency veterinarian, I especially appreciate the direct and pragmatic clinical advice that the AAPC poisons specialists provide including prognosis, diagnostic and treatment plans and expected course of the toxidrome. It is a rare case where the AAPC is not able to improve our treatment plans with their specialist knowledge. The AAPC case report is a great resource in our 24/7 hospitals so that all clinicians are aware of the advice that has been given.

AAPC also provides important insight into the treatment of toxicities in our dialysis unit, directing owners and referring vets on the suitability of this treatment and informing clinical decision making in the unit.”

 

Dr Lyndal Holloway - Brisbane Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Service - BVECCS

“As an emergency centre, poisoning cases are commonplace, and the array of potential toxicants is increasing all the time. Joining the Animal Poisons Centre was a great move for our business. The helpline provides us with current information 24/7 and saves our staff a great deal of time in trying to track down the information themselves on a busy shift. The staff are friendly, the phone advice is great, and then we quickly get a more detailed report of recommendations emailed through to us. We would highly recommend the service! It is well worth the investment.”

 

Dr Mark Reeve – Tea Tree Gully Veterinary Hospital

 “We have been using the Australian Animal Poisons Centre for 6 months and I don’t know that we could practice without it now. They always answer and have someone there to walk you through the trickiest cases. Even when it’s your own dog with a sago palm toxicity at 2 in the morning! Their new mushroom identification service is very popular with clients and makes treating these cases much easier as well!”

 

Dr Adrian Simon – Sydney Veterinary Emergency and Specialists

 “We run a busy emergency & specialist practice. The Australian Animal Poisons Centre service has been an invaluable service to assist our veterinarians in the management of a variety of common and uncommon, and sometimes complex toxicity cases. The advice and availability has been superb.”

Dr Manty Arnott – North Hobart Veterinary Hospital

“We have just discovered Australian Animal Poisons Centre and are thrilled with the service. We recently had a dog with ivermectin toxicity and the information provided to us was excellent, thorough and very timely (we received information on the phone at the time, and then a follow up email). It has also been great for our clients to use the service. Highly recommend this business.”

Dr David Hall – Advanced Vet Care

“In our early dealings with the Australian Animal Poisons Centre our experienced and busy 24/7 emergency team has already received valuable case help which has expediently and seamlessly helped us get the best results possible for our patients. AAPC has been professional to collaborate with and importantly they provide us case-specific advice rather than just a data sheet of information. We look forward to them continuing to help us.”
