Caller states that her dog was diagnosed with Lyme disease on 4/18/11. The product was applied to the dog on 4/19/11. Dog was on Animax ointment and oral Clavamox drops. On 4/23, her husband became lethargic and had vomiting, bloating and diarrhea. He was taken to ER on 4/26 and had test performed, and was admitted to hospital. He was diagnosed with c-dif (bacterial infection "caused from antibotics"). He was treated with IV fluids and medications (unknown exactly what) and released yesterday. Husband's symptoms have resolved. Caller believes that husband was exposed to the oral antibiotic that her dog was prescribed to, but is unsure how (perhaps the dog licked him after it was given the Clavamox drops). FU 2011-05-03: 5/3/2011 2:00:10 PM Anderson, Traci Cb: Spoke with [name]. She reports her husband has a bowel obstruction, not c-dif, as previously reported. He is under care with his health care provider. Case closed. No further information is expected. Case is closed.

14. Severity classification.


15. Provide supplemental information here.

No direct or indirect exposure to product reported. Time between treatment of dog and onset of signs in patient too long for connection. Observed signs unspecific, and not expected as inconsistent with product's pharmacotoxicological profile. Doctor finally diagnosed patient with a bowel obstruction. Thus, relation with Advantix ruled out. Initial assessment confirmed by medical doctor. Follow-up reporting as further information was added.
