1-19387383: A reporter (dog owner) called on 08/02/2009 to report the possible exposure of his dog to a hornet and wasp spray containing the active ingredients d-trans Allethrin, Permethrin, NOBD, Ethanol, Isobutane, and Propane. According to the reporter, the product was applied earlier in the day. The dog was not allowed in the treated area until 4 hours following product application when the product was dry. The dog developed vomiting, diarrhea, and a runny eye an unknown time later. The reporter was advised that the product has a low level of toxicity and a wide margin of safety. Ingestions of wet product may result in minor GI upset. A recommendation was made to maintain the dog's hydration with water and Pedialyte or Gator-Ade. A recommendation was also made to have the dog evaluated by a veterinarian if the symptoms persisted or worsened. On follow up on 08/04/2009, the initial reporter's wife stated that the dog was doing better and that the vomiting had resolved. It is unknown whether the diarrhea and runny eye were persistent or whether the dog was seen by a veterinarian. No further information was obtained.
