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

Death

19. Provide supplemental information here

Death not expected after product application, as inconsistent with pharmaco-toxicological product profile. Time to onset too long ( 2 months), therefore an allergic/anaphylactic reaction is unlikely. Other etiologies are more probable. Product was applied before and well tolerated (no signs reported). Though no necropsy was performed, considering all aspects a product connection seems unlikely.
