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

On March 18, 2014 the pig was hypersalivating and had a seizure at home. Later that afternoon, the owner took the pig to the veterinarian and told them there was evidence of exposure to the product. The pig presented at the veterinary clinic with tremors and a normal heart rate. The attending veterinarian gave the pig activated charcoal (AC) and later that evening called the Animal Product Safety Service (APSS). The APSS veterinarian stated methomyl is a hot carbamate and muscarinic salivation, lacrimation, urination, defecation, dyspnea, emesis (SLUDDE) signs as well as nicotinic signs of tremors and seizures are possible. The APSS veterinarian also stated life threatening seizures and increased bronchial secretions may occur. The APSS veterinarian recommended monitoring the pig at the veterinary clinic for central nervous (CNS), gastrointestinal (GI), SLUDDE, and respiratory signs. The APSS veterinarian also recommended diazepam for tremors and seizures, atropine if needed for bradycardia, fluid therapy, monitoring electrolytes (sodium 4 hours post AC), and calling back with questions.
