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

1-26286792- The reporter, a pet owner, indicates exposure of his animal to an insecticide containing the active ingredient lambda-cyhalothrin. The pet was also exposed to an herbicide not marketed by the registrant that was of equivocal formulation. The two products had been applied to the callers residential lawn the day prior to his initial report. He indicated the morning of his initial call his eleven month fourteen pound male mixed breed dog had vomited twice. The pet owner had noted grass in the vomitus and was unsure if the animal had ingested grass from application areas. He indicated he would be restricting the animals access to application areas going forward, but asked about potential for harm. The caller was advised to contact the registrant of the herbicide noted directly. He caller was advised that the insecticidal product used according to label instructions would not be anticipated to be problematic. Ingestion of foliage to which the product was applied may potentially act as a gastrointestinal irritant. Certainly, evidence of gastrointestinal irritation may be seen if dogs eat grass alone. The caller was advised to replace fluids as lost, offer bland diets and offered the threshold at which they might seek veterinarian assistance. He was advised, typically, veterinary assistance would be unnecessary. On follow up the reporter indicated the animal had vomited twice and spontaneously resolved. No veterinary care was indicated. No further information is available.

To be determined by Registrant

18. Severity classification (if there is more than 1 possible classification


19. Provide supplemental information here

Symptoms are not consistent with exposure to lambda-cyhalothrin. Repidity of resolution is more likely attributable to animal eating grass only.
