Learning objectives
Fornire agli studenti gli elementi teorici e pratici necessari e indispensabili per una corretta e esauriente comprensione dei processi dinamici e cinetici dei farmaci di maggior interesse specifico nelle specie animali da reddito e d'affezione.
Fornire agli studenti gli strumenti per un corretto utilizzo dei farmaci negli animali sotto il profilo del controllo e della cura delle malattie e della produzione di alimenti di origine animale destinati al consumo alimentare nell'uomo.
Nell'ambito della Tossicologia Veterinaria, che si articola in due parti, una generale e una speciale, l'obbiettivo è quello di fornire allo studente nozioni relative a fonti di intossicazione, metabolismo e meccanismo d'azione dei principali tossici, nelle diverse specie animali. Verranno inoltre fornite informazioni di ordine tossicologico relativamente a sostanze tossiche responsabili di avvelenamenti acuti e cronici, con un approccio specie-specifico.
