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

Roundup Weed And Grass Killer Ready To Use Plus Pump N Go Sprayer (observed agent id) Possible exposure occurred on Jul 06, 2009 at 12:00 PM CDT (possible ). Exposure involved 0.0 Not App (not specific) by unknown route. The exposure was accidental, and occurred at animal owner yard. [Note : The yard was sprayed with Round-up 07/06/09. The dog has had access to the yard since then. Yesterday the dog became lethargic and started vomiting. Today the dog has labored breathing and has bloody stool. (by (name) on Jul 08, 2009 at 06:35 PM)] Because the amount was somewhat consistent, the patient was considered to be at low risk of developing clinical signs. If signs develop, there is low risk that those signs will be life-threatening. [Note : Would not expect signs of this severity or duration. Would not expect late onset of signs. Worst I would have expected would be mild GI upset on Monday (by (name) on Jul 08, 2009 at 06:48 PM)] [Note : Spoke with rDVM about case. Discussed typical signs from Roundup. The timing doesn't fit the exposure. Once product is dry, it is non toxic. However, if plants had started to wilt, they are sometimes more palatable, and dog could have ingested plants, thus causing gi signs. However, the labored breathing and ataxia are not expected signs. Could dog have been exposure to other toxins...any chance of mushrooms being out in yard? Owners could not rule out the presence of mushroom exposure. Dog was known to pick things up in her mouth.

19. Provide supplemental information here

Because the time course was poorly consistent, the amount was somewhat consistent, and the findings were poorly consistent, this substance was considered to have doubtful likelihood of causing the clinical situation.
