(eg. description of the frequency and severity of the symptoms

Owner states he spread the granules around the foundation of his house and under his deck yesterday. The cats like to go under the deck, but unknown if they went under there yesterday or this morning. This morning he found both of the cats in the basement shaking, convulsing, lethargic, and vomiting up blood. Caller is asking what to do for them? When quizzing the cat's owners that the symptoms are NOT typical in the amount of Permethrin and unknown if any contact with the product and when asked if they got into and Rodenticides or any flea topical products applied to the cats, his wife said she applied the Bio-Spot for 33-66# dogs. She did not realize the Bio spot was for dogs only and NOT cats. Caller was told to seek medical attention immediately as the symptoms of the shaking, convulsing is more likely from the Bio spot product applied! Unknown why the cats are vomiting blood. Caller implied "as bad off as the cats are he may not take them to the vet and take care of them himself." He did not say what he would do. Follow-up information: Caller did not take either of the cats to the DVM. One of the cats "made it" and one didn't. One of the cats is fine, and its symptoms cleared up late in the day on Sunday (6/3). The other cat passed away on Saturday (6/2). Note: Given the history provided, the relationship between the alleged contact and the effect in the incident description is indeterminable.
