04 Dec What is petTOX?
petTOX is a database which has been custom developed for the Australian Animal Poisons Centre. Exclusive to petTOX, is its ability to provide real-time data mapping of poisoning cases. This unique feature will assist the Animal Poisons Centre track and monitor poisoning events around Australia in real-time. By informing authorities, vets and pet owners we hope to reduce morbidity and mortality associated with animal poisonings.
Another feature, special to petTOX is the capability to send real-time poisoned patient alerts to veterinary clinics to expect a poisoned patient. This unique feature will assist the Animal Poisons Centre in revolutionising the management of poisoned animals in Australia. As a result of the real-time notification and included risk assessment, veterinarians can prepare themselves for incoming poisoned patients and effective treatment can be implemented more rapidly. This ultimately translates to improved patient outcomes.
