1-15070717: The reporter called on 7/3/07 to report her 11 month old dog may have eaten some product containing the active ingredient Bacillus Thuringiensis subsp. israelensis. According to the reporter, about 12 hours prior to the call she had noticed an open bag of the product. Since then she had also noticed her dog had become lethargic and anorexic. The safety profile of the product was discussed, including the products ability to act as a GI irritant. A recommendation was made to monitor for vomiting/nausea/diarrhea, to replace any fluids lost if symptoms developed, and to seek veterinary care if symptoms persisted or worsened. A follow-up call revealed the dogs symptoms had lasted for 24 hours. The dog had not been taken to a veterinarian but a stool sample had been checked. The reporter had not heard back from the veterinarian regarding the stool sample and assumed that it had been negative. Note: The reporter identified the product from memory as the label on the bag had worn off.
