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

1-16394443: The reporter called on 7/13/08 to report the possible exposure of her dog to a product containing the active ingredients Mecoprop, Dicamba, and 2,4,D. According to the reporter, she had treated her lawn with the product about 4.5 hours prior to the call. She had let her dog have access to the yard about 30 minutes prior to the call. She thought her dog had chewed on some of the treated vegetation, as he had started to vomit soon after. The safety profile of the product was discussed in terms of its potential as a GI irritant. A recommendation was made to monitor the pet - the vomiting should be self-limiting as long as further ingestion of the treated vegetation was prevented. An additional recommendation was made to replace fluids and to encourage drinking by adding some chicken broth to the pet¿s water. The reporter was encouraged to seek veterinary care if the vomiting continued for more than 2-3 hours. A follow-up call revealed the dog had recovered after being ill most of the evening of 7/13/08.
