Death

19. Provide supplemental information here

As grooming was observed oral exposure can not be ruled out completely. However, death is not expected following product exposure as inconsistent with products pharmacological profile. An overdose of 5 collars around the neck was investigated in adult cats and dogs for an 8 months period and in 10 week old kittens and 7 week old puppies for a 6 months period without causing serious signs. No signs of anaphylaxis reported which would have occurred in close proximity to the collar application. Geriatric animal involved in this case was in poor condition with signs of vomiting and weight loss suggesting other underlying health problems. Even though necropsy was not performed, considering the known product profile and long time to onset, a product involvement is considered as unlikely.
