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

1-36609730 - The reporter, a pet owner, indicated that his two dogs were exposed to an insecticidal dog shampoo containing the active ingredients phenothrin and pyriproxyfen. The reporter indicated that a few hours prior to initial contact with the company he had bathed his 5-week-old, 0.5 pound, male mixed breed dog (Subform III #1) and his 5-week-old, 1 pound, male mixed breed dog with the shampoo. The reporter then left home for a couple of hours and when he returned he found his 0.5 pound puppy dead and his 1 pound puppy was having trouble walking. The reporter did see that per labeled directions the product is not meant for dogs less than 6 months of age. A necropsy was recommended to help determine the cause of death. Bathing with a non-insecticidal shampoo, followed by immediate veterinary care was recommended for the 1 pound puppy. On follow-up call, one day later, the reporter indicated that he had bathed the 1 pound puppy with a non-insecticidal shampoo and symptoms resolved within 4 hours. No veterinary care was needed. The reporter had not yet submitted the 0.5 pound puppy for necropsy. No further information is available.
