1-19167372: A reporter (dog owner) called on 07/14/2009 to report her puppy's exposure to a flea product containing the active ingredients Permethrin and Methoprene. According to the reporter, the product was applied on 07/11/2009 and the puppy licked some of the wet product. The puppy vomited and developed diarrhea an unknown time following product ingestion. Starting on 07/13/2009, the dog was anorexic and not drinking. The reporter had been providing Pedialyte with a turkey baster and the vomiting seemed to have resolved. The reporter was advised that small ingestions of the wet product may result in minor nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. Persistent signs are not expected with the described exposure. A recommendation was made to have the puppy evaluated by a veterinarian given the persistent signs and risk of dehydration and hypoglycemia from not eating or drinking. On follow, the reporter stated that the puppy was not taken to a veterinarian and died on 07/15/2009. No further information was obtained.
