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

1-35997888 - The reporter, the brother of the pet owner, indicated that his brother's dog may have been exposed to a rodenticide containing the active ingredient diphacinone. At the time of the initial call the reporter stated that his brother's 1 year old, 50 pound, female Pit bull mexed breed dog had been acting weird; it was lethargic and whining while eating. The reporter initially thought the dog's symptoms might be because she had gotten pregnant or because she had been chewing on a dead squirrel but then he remembered that two days prior to initial contact with the registrant the dog had knocked over a garbage can where two 1.5 ounce bags of this product had been placed. The reporter indicated that he did notice that the dog had green stool after the exposure. The reporter was advised that there are numerous possible causes for the described symptoms including a GI foreign body. Immediate veterinary care was recommended to determine an underlying cause and appropriate treatment for the described symptoms. The reporter was further advised that if symptoms were from exposure to this product the veterinarian could treat the dog with the antidote, vitamin K1. On follow up call, two days later, the reporter stated that the dog was brought to the veterinarian on the day of initial contact. The veterinarian did not run any tests to determine the cause for the symptoms but he did prescribe vitamin K1. During the visit the veterinarian had indicated that they could start the dog on 'extensive and expensive treatment' but the veterinarian thought it would ultimately not end up helping the dog. The dog died at home later that evening. Per the reporter no obvious bleeding was seen. No further information is available.
