Abstract:

Build a strong foundation for understanding how medications may help or potentially harm animals. Fundamentals of pharmacology for veterinary technicians follows a body-systems approach making it easy to correlate basic anatomy and physiology with the drugs used to treat diseases of each body system. A strong foundation of drug administration, pharmacokinetics, measurement systems, as well as drug approval and safety provides the concepts necessary to understand drug actions and safe drug administration. A StudyWARE CD-ROM accompanies the book which provides additional practice via quizzes or games.
