This overview highlights the importance of adopting a one health approach to tackle the challenges associated with acute pesticide poisoning in animals. The interconnectedness of human, animal, and environmental health underscores the need of collaborative efforts. Swift veterinary care is crucial for immediate intervention, while ongoing monitoring and reporting help identify emerging threats and potential human health risks. This approach emphasizes a unified effort across disciplines to monitor, assess, regulate, educate, and respond to pesticide-related incidents. Surveillance and monitoring systems are foundational to this approach, amalgamating veterinary and human health data to discern trends and potential cross-species exposures. Emergency response plans are integral, ensuring coordinated efforts between veterinary and human health professionals in the event of pesticide poisoning incidents. Data sharing mechanisms and enhanced communication channels foster rapid response and information dissemination. Environmental conservation practices, such as habitat protection and sustainable agriculture, contribute to safeguarding ecosystems from pesticide-related harm. Community engagement is pivotal, encouraging local participation in surveillance and empowering communities to influence decisions regarding pesticide use. By fostering collaboration, promoting awareness, and integrating various expertise, this approach strives to protect the health of humans, animals, and the environment in the face of pesticide-related challenges.
