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

Owner applied to some ant hills yesterday and the cat was nearby and it sounds like she shooed him away. Owner is afraid that the cat was then exposed later as then she noticed that the cat is not eating or drinking much (did drink some milk) , is lethargic and having trouble walking/stiff. Caller was advised that cats are more sensitive. Chlorpyrifos causes non-typical signs in cats. Predominant neurologic signs are tremors, (especially of the back, top of head, and neck), ataxia, depression, and seizures. Other signs include anorexia, ventroflexion of neck, change in personality, hyperesthesia, and hyperactivity. The most common muscarinic signs are salivation, diarrhea, vomiting and dyspnea. Mydriasis and miosis occur with the same frequency. Depression, anorexia, and tremors can persist for 2-4 weeks. (Intramuscular chlorpyrifos exposure has produced a delayed neuropathy in cats that causes hindlimb ataxia, hypermetria, and proprioceptive deficits about 19 days after exposure). During discussions with regular DVM, it was learn't that the The cat has a puncture wound and an abscess. This is the most likely cause of the clinical signs. Outcome unknown.
