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

On Aug. 9, 2007, the product safety call centre was contacted by the pet owner regarding the inadvertent ingestion of a small quantity of fly bait by a 2.5 year old Cocker Spaniel dog. On Aug. 10, 2007, (company name), spoke with the pet owner. The dog was a female that has just weaned a litter after whelping on June 3, 2007. Ingestion of a small but unknown amount of azamethiphos, z-9-tricosene had occurred around 10 PM on Aug. 9, 2007. The dog had no change in activity or appetite. The owner commented that the stool was soft about 12 hours after ingestion. Diarrhea resolved without treatment over 2 days. Follow-up information obtained on Aug. 23, 2007 indicated that the owner felt that the dog's stomach was more sensitive since the exposure. Two separate episodes of vomiting have occurred since. On Aug. 17, 2007, the dog vomited a meal within a few hours of eating. On Aug. 20, 2007, the dog ate raw apples and vomited 4 times over the day. The dog's appetite is still good however she tends to spread out the eating of her food over the day more than she used to. The dog's diet is commercial dog food and raw meat and bones (venison, goose and moose heart and liver especially) and raw vegetables and fruit. The dog apparently gets into the garden to eat things quite often. Veterinary examination or consultation for the clinical signs has not been sought.
