19. Provide supplemental information here

The information contained in this report is based on self-reported statements provided to the registrant during telephone Interview(s). These self-reported descriptions of an incident have not been independently verified to be factually correct or complete descriptions of the incident. For that reason, information contained in this report does not and can not form the basis for a determination of whether the reported clinical effects are causally related to exposure to the product identified in the telephone interviews. Any relationship between the use of this product and the development of the complications reported in this case is inconceivable and lacks biological plausibility. Secondly, the product use history is extremely vague and lacks any description of a known or defined point of direct exposure to this product. Even had casual or incidental contact with a surface treated with this pesticide occurred, such serious illness as reported in this cat is unexpected. Furthermore, this animal was never properly evaluated and treated by a veterinarian, despite having been hit by a car 4 days prior to the onset of illness.
