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

On April 29, 2015 the dog developed pruritus. On April 30, 2015 the owner bathed the dog using dog shampoo and the pruritus ended. Later that day, the pruritus began again, along with vocalization, so the owner contacted the Animal Product Safety Service (APSS). The APSS veterinarian stated the risk is for mild-moderate, self-limiting, dermal hypersensitivity/paresthesia ("pins and needles" feeling). The APSS assistant recommended monitoring the dog for dermatological signs (redness or irritation), bathing the dog (using liquid dish washing detergent (LDWD)), applying vitamin E (puncture capsule and apply to the affected areas), and applying a cold compress (to alleviate pain or swelling, cool a cloth in the fridge/freezer for a few minutes and apply to affected area). The APSS assistant also recommended consulting with veterinarian (to discuss using a different product), calling back with questions, taking the dog to the veterinarian (if signs continue past tonight), and have the veterinarian call for information.
