In addition to offering poisons advice to its members, VPIS also consults with the  RVC’s Emergency & Critical Care (ECC) team based at the Queen Mother Hospital for Animals (QMHA) for additional expert clinical advice.

This service is beneficial for cases where the patients have complex pre-existing conditions or for those where there is suspected toxicity but the clinical picture is atypical.

The QMHA is Europe’s largest small animal referral hospital handling over 12,000 referral and non-referral (first opinion) cases per year, providing expertise in Neurology & Neurosurgery, Anaesthesia & Analgesia, Cardiology, Internal Medicine, Soft Tissue/Orthopaedic Surgery and more.
