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

The dog accidentally ingested some of the product on July 4, 2011, and shortly after the owner called the Animal Product Safety Service (APSS) to obtain help. The APSS technician stated that the risk was for coagulopathy in 3 to 5 days. The APSS veterinarian also stated that a significant hemorrhage could occur that might result in death, but the time frame in this case was not consistent with what would be expected. The APSS technician recommended that the owner induce emesis and call back with the emesis results.
