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

Caller states her 2 horses were witnessed ingesting product 7 days ago by her children. Caller states while she is unsure of amount ingested by each horse, product is missing from its container and Little Bit was witnessed with 2 empty bait packages hanging from mouth 7 days ago. Caller states yesterday all of her horses were fine. Today caller states she found Little Bit had passed away in pasture. Caller is now concerned that the other horse that ingested product, Leo, is going to have adverse health effects too. Caller is looking for toxicity information. Assessment: I am sorry for your loss. Your horse could ingest up to (Leo 8.6oz or 260g) of bait before we would consider some form of treatment to be necessary. Given the history provided it is unlikely that Leo ingested enough of this product to be considered toxic. If more than the expected amount was ingested, signs to watch for include: difficulty breathing, lethargy, anorexia, ataxia, and evidence of bleeding in stool, urine, nasal secretions, and gums. If these signs develop consult you DVM. An antidote, Vitamin K1 is available. CB PRN. Rec that she could ask her DVM to examine horse, draw blood for a PT test, and give the initial dose of Vit K1 as a precautionary measure. I also stated that if she has further questions she can call back and ask for me or a DVM on staff. 07/090/07 Follow-up Speaking with Owner, who reports that Leo's has been fine. He did receive 3 days of injections of K1, and they are continuing to monitor. No testing was ever performed to verify the cause of Little Bit's demise. Case closed.
