• SSRI Toxicity in Veterinary Medicine

Selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are a class of medications that are commonly used in human medicine for depression. As these medications are the #1 prescribed drug in America, they are becoming more of a problem in veterinary medicine when our patients accidentally ingest them. In this podcast, VetGirl discusses the mechanism of action of SSRIs, how they affect our pets, what signs of toxicosis they cause, and how to treat them.
