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

1-16449153: The reporter called on 7/25/2008, to report the exposure of her 2 year old female cat to a flea and tick product containing the active ingredient Methoprene. According to the reporter, the product had been applied one week prior to the call. Two days after the product was applied, the cat started to lose hair at the application site. At the time of the call, the cat had hairloss, redness and a rash - all at the product application site. It was conveyed to the reporter that this would be an unexpected reaction with use per label directions. A recommendation was made to bathe the cat in hand dishwashing soap to remove any remaining product from the skin and to use of a spray hydrocortisone cream to help soothe irritation on the back of the cat¿s neck. The caller was advised to seek veterinary care if the symptoms persisted or worsened. Several follow-up attempts were made but were unsuccessful.
