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

Caller states they applied this product on their lawn 2 days ago. She thinks their 3 month old 15lb Pit Bull dog may have gotten some of the product on his paws and licked it off on the day of application (7/9/07). Yesterday (7/10/07) the dog began throwing up continually, and today it has stopped eating. The caller states that she has been giving the dog Pedialyte. Caller states that they do not take their animals to a vet because of financial constraints. Caller is convinced that they dog's symptoms are due to this product. Assessment: - Ingestions of small quantities of this product are unlikely to result in significant problems but if enough is ingested minor GI upset including nausea, vomiting and diarrhea may result. - I agree with your choice to offer pedialyte, we usually recommend giving a 1/2 and 1/2 mixture of pedialyte and water. - Because the vomiting has been significant and has persisted for more than 24 hours, and this is a small puppy, I highly recommend that you take your dog in to the vet. - Please call back if any additional concerns or questions arise 07/13/07 Follow-up The dog was not taken to the DVM. The dog began vomiting blood and died about 3 hrs after talking to H&S. She believes the product caused the symptoms and death. Assessment: Given sympathies on the death of the dog. Reviewed the product info given during initial call. Unlikely the product would have caused the death if the product was used as directed. There are many things like diseases, infections, rodenticide ingestions that could cause those symptoms and death.
