19. Provide supplemental information here

Report lacks important information (e.g. patient details, health history, time to onset etc.). Reporting of occurrence over four years after product application, thus occurrence of fatal outcome probably not within close time of product application. No signs of allergy or anaphylaxis reported. Thus, allergic/anaphylactic reaction unlikely. Death not expected after product application, as inconsistent with pharmaco-toxicological product profile. Product has wide margin of safety. Oral LD50 in rat 642 mg / kg BW. 20-fold overdosage tolerated by dogs without showing any side effect. The dog died of an unknown cause according to case description. Overall, a product relation is considered unlikely.
