Agent Exposure Roundup Weed and Grass Killer Super Concentrate (evidence agent id) Evidence exposure occurred on Mar 29, 2010 at 10:00 AM CDT (evidence ). Exposure involved 0.0 Not App (not specific) orally. The exposure was accidental, and occurred at yard. [Note : Owner is calling about her puppies who ingested some weeds that were sprayed with Roundup two days ago. Owner stated starting yesterday both puppies have been vomiting and are having diarrhea. Owner has tried to feed them boiled chicken and force water down them to keep them hydrated. The Roundup was diluted as labeled. (by (name) on Mar 31, 2010 at 05:35 PM; amended by (name) on Mar 31, 2010 at 05:49 PM)] Because the amount was unknown consistent, the patient was considered to be at unknown risk of developing clinical signs. If signs develop, there is low risk that those signs will be life-threatening. [Note : Product is safe when used per label instructions; casual ingestion of freshly-treated vegetation by a puppy may result in transient digestive upset, at most. These pups should respond to supportive care over 24 to 48 hrs. Note: pups were last vaccinated several weeks ago, by the client (by (name) on Mar 31, 2010 at 05:49 PM)] Potential Cause Roundup Weed and Grass Killer Super Concentrate Because the time course was generally consistent, the amount was unknown consistent, and the findings were poorly consistent, this substance was considered to have doubtful likelihood of causing the clinical situation. Mar 31, 2010 at 05:35 PM CDT (toxicologist) interacted with Ms. (owner) for reason: obtain help. [Note : spoke with client about nursing care at home (single mom, cannot afford a vet): liquid diet (chicken broth, yogurt; water) next two days; graduate to hamburger-rice mixture (by (name) on Mar 31, 2010 at 05:49 PM)]
