Toxbox

ToxBox

To use the service initially contact the VPIS on 020 7188 0200 who can advise you on the toxin and treatment you require.

We have teamed up with the Veterinary Poisons Information Service to bring you the potentially lifesaving Tox Box service.

This service offers other veterinary practices 24 hour access to drugs used in the emergency treatment of poisoning that they are most likely to need, but least likely to stock. Specific drugs and products used to treat poisoning are kept in stock at our Windermere branch of Oakhill Veterinary Group. These treatments are supplied at cost, plus a small handling fee.

The service is available 24 hours a day to all veterinary practices, please call our  24 hour number in the event of requiring emergency ToxBox treatment: 015394 88555
