Toxins and your animal


September 13, 2019


The Toxins and your Animal lesson is designed to introduce the topic of toxicology. It will stimulate participants to consider how their animals could be exposed to toxic materials and efforts they can take to prevent health concerns. The lesson includes a hands-on activity that will help reinforce the impact toxic materials can have on animals.



After completing this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Explain what a toxin is and provide examples of toxins.
  • Analyze various inputs and decide if they will have a positive or negative impact on an animal.
  • Describe ways that an animal could be exposed to a toxin and how they can reduce the risk of exposure.
