24 – 7 Animal Poisons Centre

VPIS is the only 24-hour specialised emergency telephone service in Europe dedicated to providing information on the management of actual or suspected poisoning in animals. We provide support to subscribed veterinary professionals worldwide.

Expert Case Specific Advice

With 22 years of continuous service, over 200,000 cases and extensive research, VPIS can deal with the effects of thousands of toxic substances in small animals, livestock, exotics, or wildlife.  VPIS covers substances such as human drugs, household products, plants, agro-chemicals and venomous animals.

Supporting you to achieve the best outcome

For each enquiry you will speak directly with a trained veterinary information scientist. We will cover the risk assessment for that toxin and species, the anticipated clinical effects, and the ideal treatment protocol, along with prognostic advice.

Using evidence to further knowledge

Our team is actively engaged in research to refine our advice, extend our knowledge base and publish our insight to the wider community. The feedback from veterinarians on real cases helps to further the science and methods available to achieve better outcomes for animals.
