The caller described applying the product via a broadcast spreader to his yard within thirty minutes of the initial contact with the registrant. The caller reported he had observed his dogs (a one year male five pound mixed breed dog and a three year eleven pound female toy poodle dog) ingesting the product within fifteen minutes of the contact with the registrant. The animals had vomited. The caller was advised of the gastrointestinal irritant effect of the product, over the counter care that might be offered, and the threshold at which he might seek veterinary care. On routine call back the reporter indicated the animal had vomited several times but then spontaneously resolved. They did not require veterinary care.
