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

1-16734395: A reporter called on 10/11/2008 to report the possible exposure of a dog to an insecticide containing the active ingredient Permethrin. According to the reporter, the product had been applied "around the home" (unclear whether product was applied indoors or outside) on a couple of occasions during the summer. Product ingestion or other exposure was not witnessed. At the time of the report the dog had rectal bleeding (onset of signs unknown). The reporter was advised that the sign described is not an expected result of product exposure. A recommendation was made to have the dog evaluated immediately by a veterinarian to rule out other more likely causes for the rectal bleeding. On follow up, the reporter stated that the dog died on 10/12/2008. The reporter had not taken the dog to a veterinarian but had spoken with one who thought the dog likely had parvo. No further information was obtained.
