Would oleander by any other name kill as quickly? You betcha!
There are lots of plants out there that can cause morbidity and mortality in livestock. Some of these plants are known nasties, while others – such as summer or winter crops – are just good plants gone bad.
We can sometimes be faced with sick and dying animals where a diagnosis is not immediately obvious. It is important to be able to quickly rule a plant poisoning out (or in). This WebinarPLUS will cover the clinical signs, treatment and prevention strategies for known crop and pasture poisonings as well as common agricultural and garden weeds. It will also discuss a logical way of investigating whether plants may be involved in an animal disease event and include resources and tips on how to identify unknown plants.
After completing this course, participants will:
- Be able to diagnose and treat common crop and pasture poisonings.
- Know and be able to manage the risk factors for these poisonings occurring
- Be able to identify the key poisonous agricultural weeds and garden escapees that affect livestock and the clinical signs that may accompany them
- Develop an approach to investigating whether a plant poison may be involved in the disease and death of livestock
