19. Provide supplemental information here

GDS comment: Pruritus more expected to be linked to the application site than to be generalized. However, considering hyperactivity reported as well, dog may experience paresthesia caused by permethrin. Panting is not expected however is rather consequence of hyperactivity. Behavioural disorders described are very unspecific, however may be a consequence of the uncomfortable feeling caused by the applied product. Digestive tract disorders, are rather unspecific in dogs and may have multiple potential causes and are not expected following topical application of product. Potential oral uptake not reported. However, signs may be linked to hyperactivity. Considering consistent time to onset, a product connection is deemed to be possible.
