1-22591921: The reporter, a veterinarian, called on 05/11/10 to report a patient of his may have been exposed to a pesticide containing the active ingredient Cypermethrin. The caller reports a 1 year 50 pound Labrador retriever presented to him for symptoms described as lethargy vomiting and diarrhea. He did not describe the duration of the symptoms or any treatments that may have been provided. He indicates the animal may have ingested material to which the product was applied. He did not specify the amount of ingestion, when the ingestion took place, or if the product applied was concentrate versus dilute product. He, lastly, did not specify if the exposure had been observed. The caller was informed of the class of the active ingredient (pyrethroid) and advised ingestion of small quantities of product is unlikely to yield symptoms more severe than gastrointestinal irritation. He was further advised to treat symptoms as they arise exposures are treated supportively. The caller revealed on routine call back that the animal had died in the night. He indicated the animal was in ¿¿¿pretty bad shape¿¿¿ when it presented. He indicated the lawn had been sprayed recently and it was unknown whether actual exposure had taken place.
