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

1-22896433- The reporter, a pet owner, called to indicate her animal was exposed to a rodenticide containing the active ingredient diphacinone. The animal, a 12-15 pound male Jack Russell Terrier dog, had several days ago been seen with a package of the product after the owner had laid out the product in an unspecified manner and location in a residential setting. The exposure was approximated to be 4+ days prior to the initial contact with the registrant. The owner was not able to free the product from the animal, and the subsequent ingestion was of an unknown quantity. The animal was at the time of the initial contact demonstrating signs of anorexia, ataxia, apparent pain of unknown nature, and was down unable to rise. The caller was advised to seek prompt veterinary care, was advised of antidotes, and treatment protocols following ingestion. The caller was further advised treatment can be complicated if the animals present several days following substantial ingestion and are symptomatic. On routine call back the owner indicated the animal had died. She indicated she had phoned a veterinarian and was turned away. The veterinarian had stated nothing could be done for the animal. This opinion would not conform to current veterinary emergency and critical care standards of care. The pet owner stated she gave her animal one of her own "sleeping pills" (the product was unspecified) and the animal never "woke up." The owner indicated her intention was to alleviate pain, but did not indicate her intention was euthanasia. No further information is known.
