exposure and toxicosis in four species of birds of prey presented to a wildlife clinic in Massachusetts, 2006-2010.
The femur was screened for chronic lead exposure, and liver tissue was screened for selenium, lead, manganese, cadmium, copper, iron, zinc, molybdenum, arsenic, mercury, and anticoagulant rodenticides
The phase-out of poisons known as second-generation anticoagulant rodenticides
, or SGARs, is based partly on research Dr.
Popular brands that contain anticoagulant rodenticides
are: Havoc, Liqui-Tox II, Final Blox, d-Con, Contrac, Enforcer, Farnam Just One Bite, and Tomcat.
Multicomponent determination of 4-hydroxycoumarin anticoagulant rodenticides
in blood serum by liquid chromatography with fluorescence detection.
Mortalities among birds of prey from anticoagulant rodenticide
(AR) toxicosis have been documented in several countries.
The company challenged attempts to cancel second generation anticoagulant rodenticide
product registrations because of concerns about consumers using alternate products that contain a neurotoxin which, unlike d-CON products, has no known antidote in the case of accidental exposure.
We describe lesions in 29 adult domestic pigeons (Columba livia) poisoned with chlorophacinone, an indandione anticoagulant rodenticide
