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

1-25374091- The reporter, a pet owner indicates his animal may have been exposed to a rodenticide containing the active ingredient brodifacoum. The pet owner indicated her ninety pound one year female Mastiff/Bulldog may have ingested the product within the past 24 hours. The animal owner indicated an empty packet of the product had been found on the barn floor torn open she was concerned it was ingested by her dog. Exposure was not observed. The pet owner stated she had contacted her veterinarian who had recommended induction of emesis with hydrogen peroxide. The pet owner had done this three times and had seen no bait in the vomitus. She now reported the animal was lethargic (nonspecific signs). The veterinarian had recommended the animal be further monitored for blood shot eyes and/or bruising. The pet owner was informed of current standards of care following ingestion of anticoagulant rodenticides in domestic animals. The pet owner was advised the ingestion described (calculation based on the animals body weight) could be problematic for the dog and advise to seek care. The same day the attending veterinarian called the registrant questioning the advice given. Calculations and current standards of care were reviewed with the veterinarian. On routine follow up with the owner it was indicated the animal had been given a course Vitamin K1 and its affect had improved. No further information is available.
