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

1-19644547: A reporter (veterinary technician) called on 08/26/2009 to report the exposure of a cat to a flea egg and larvae product containing the active ingredient Methoprene. According to the reporter, the product was applied to the cat 2 hours prior to the report. Within 15 minutes following product application, the cat became lethargic and developed tremors and dilated pupils. The cat had been bathed. The reporter was advised that the active ingredient has little to mammalian toxicity, so adverse effects are not expected following labeled use. Cats with symptoms should be bathed well in a non-insecticidal shampoo to remove the product. A recommendation was made to rule out other potential causes for signs (other products applied to the cat or other animals in the house that cat may have contact with) and to treat symptomatically. On follow up on 08/27/2009, the treating veterinarian stated that the cat was bathed and no other treatment was performed. The cat had improved after bathing. On follow up on 08/28/2009, a veterinary clinic employee stated that the cat's owner reported that the cat was fully recovered except for some mild agitation. No further information was obtained.
