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

Dog was treated with Spot on Zodiac Flea product. Symptoms started after two hours of application. Running, panting, spinning, tremors, all symptoms lasted for at least 12 hours. My dog Bijou will be on the methocarbamole for the next couple of days. This morning - Thurs Apr 22/10 she seemed better. She slept through the night. Please see attached. I am attaching the letter to Wellmark International that I am sending to them. The manufacturer of Zodiac. Letter sent by animal owner {Case #, I am sending in documentation from the Zodiac Flea and Tick as proof on April 20/10 and veterinarian bill in which I would like to receive a refund on. After I applied the Zodiac product to my dog, she did have an adverse effect within a couple of hours after application. I purchased this product at our local Pet Value in (location). Bijou is a 5 year old Schipperke (spade female) that endured an extremely bad reaction to this product. Approx. 7:30 in the evening, I applied this product as to the directions on the package and within 2 hours my dog appeared to be distress. She was running around the house and panting. A short time later, she started to spin in circles and contracted muscle spasms. I called the vet that was on call that evening (12:30am) and recommended that I bath her in a grease cutting detergent. I thoroughly bathed her twice to hopefully remove and remnants of the Flea product. I took her to bed with me and was twitching and spinning until 5:30am in which she finally fell asleep due to exhaustion. I called the vet first thing in the morning and explained the situation and they wanted to see her right away. With a thorough exam, my vet had prescribed Methocarbamole tables and was informed that this would settle the muscle spasms. Attached is the documentation of my vet bill that I would like to be reimbursed for. Pet Valu did refund my money for the product and I am asking you to refund my vet bill. You may reach me at my home phone number and e-mail (#, name)
