1-16718567: A reporter called on 10/07/2008 to report the exposure of three dogs to an anticoagulant rodenticide containing the active ingredient Diphacinone. According to the reporter, the product was spread outside earlier on the day of the report where he thought the dogs would not have access to it. Twenty minutes prior to the report, the reporter saw the older dog eat 6-7 pellets, and the two puppies ingested an unknown amount. The reporter was advised of the toxic doses for each dog given the reported weights. The caller was also advised that based on the potential for toxicity, all three dogs need to be evaluated by a veterinarian and treated with the antidote, Vitamin K1, for 3-4 weeks. The toxic profile was discussed including time frame to onset of signs, clinical signs, and potential for death without treatment. Induction of emesis was discussed including the procedure and the need to follow up with a veterinarian for treatment regardless of whether the dogs vomit product or not. A recommendation was made to have the treating veterinarian check a prothrombin time 48 hours after completion of the Vitamin K1 therapy to ensure treatment is complete. After several unsuccessful attempts at follow up, the reporter was reached on 10/10/2008. The reporter stated that the older dog had been seen by the veterinarian and given an unknown injection. Neither puppy had been evaluated by a veterinarian as the reporter stated that they are skittish and he was unable to catch them. The reporter was advised that the dogs needed to be evaluated immediately by a veterinarian given the potential for toxicity. On follow up on 10/13/2008, the reporter stated that the adult dog was evaluated by a veterinarian (unknown date) and started on Vitamin K1 for 2 weeks. This dog was asymptomatic. Neither puppy was seen by the veterinarian and neither puppy had been given Vitamin K1. One puppy was asymptomatic at the time of the follow up. The second puppy developed severe hemorrhage (unknown date) and died on 10/12/2008. No further information was obtained.
