Awesome video. Just to clarify, 4-MP is the treatment of choice for cats... but it must be used within 3 hours. Studies (Connelly et al) have shown that it is MORE effective than ethanol (with less side effects). So definitely use it in cats! :)

Thanks for the update Dr. Lee, I haven't had the opportunity to use 4MP on a cat yet (which is good for the cats of Portland!). Anyone else have the chance to use it in cats? It's currently on back order so everyone is getting the alcohol...

Thank you so much for this video. A few colleges and I watched this on a slow ER night and it was very helpful!

I enjoyed this video very much. I think it will be very helpful. I think it would be good to update the rodenticide toxicity to include the non-anticoagulant products, now that this is occurring more often.

Looked at the slide again. It is on there. I just thought that it had listed 1st then 2nd class anti-coagulants. Maybe make it "non anti-coagulants" instead of "Bromethalin" since there are others as well and they are growing in popularity.
