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

1-26419786- The reporter, a veterinarian, indicates two patients presented to her following exposure to three products. All products were poorly identified as the label was unavailable and the caller was harried. The first two registrant products were both herbicides containing the active ingredients 2,4 D and Mecoprop-p. The third product was a non registrant product by the name 'Moss out Spot Treater dry formula shaker bag'. The caller indicated the USA products were used on a Canadian residential lawn one week preceding her call. She had indicated two domestic shorthair cats had presented to her with the primary complaint of anorexia, vomiting, lethargy, dehydration, and refusal to drink. The caller did not provide onset or duration. The caller indicated the animals were exposed to the product by ingesting foliage (grass) to which the product had been applied. The caller indicated the exposure took place one week prior. The caller did not clarify further detail. The caller was advised of the potential gastrointestinal irritant effect of the registrant¿s product when directly ingested by animals. She was advised of supportive care that may be offered. The caller was advised that the severity and duration of the signs described were inconsistent with the level of exposure described and encouraged to seek other etiology for the animal¿s illness while treating signs. No further information is available.
