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

1-35850077 - The reporter, a pet owner, indicated that his dog was exposed to a molluscicide containing the active ingredient metaldehyde. At the time of the initial call, the reporter stated that his 1-year-old, Queensland Heeler dog chewed into the bag maybe one night earlier and at the time of the call the dog was having trouble seeing and was hallucinating. Immediate veterinary care was recommended. On follow-up call, two days later the reporter indicated that he called his veterinarian and was told not to bring the dog to the veterinary clinic as the veterinarian was concerned about transporting an animal that was running into things. The veterinarian recommended that the pet owner induce emesis at home. According to his veterinarians directions the reporter gave his dog two doses of 3 teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide but the dog did not vomit after either dose. The reporter then gave the dog an enema but they did not get anything out of the dogs system. Per the reporter the dog progressively declined; it was twitching violently, had other major neurologic problems was coughing and gagging and then passed away at home. No further information is available.
