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

1-22739906 ¿ The reporter a, veterinary technician, calls to indicate a patient has been exposed an insecticide with the active ingredient D-Phenothrin. The caller reports she has received a call from the owner of a 3 pound12 week male Chihuahua dog that had the product applied 3 days before the first contact with the registrant. The owner had conveyed the animal had begun to spontaneously vomit immediately following application. The animal had continued to vomit until the point of the call (3 days) and had at that point developed lethargy as well. The caller was advised to rule out other potential etiologies, while they wash the animal in a non-insecticidal shampoo. The caller was told to offer the animal care to address signs as they present. On routine call back to the veterinary clinic it was revealed the owners did not seek veterinary care due to financial constraints. The veterinary clinic advised the use of over the counter wormers, oral electrolyte solutions, and high calorie nutritional supplements in the absence of veterinary care. The owner of the animal spontaneously called the registrant later the same day and advised the animal had died. The owner reported she had followed her veterinarian¿s instructions and the animal dies despite her efforts the evening of the initial call to the registrant. The animal had been buried and consequently necropsy could not be advised. The owner was advised the effect observed would be unexpected following routine use of the product as labeled. She was informed the animal may have had an underlying sensitivity or undiagnosed medical condition.
