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

1/7/2016 9:49:10 AM Caller states that her landlord placed Final All-Weather Blox in the rafters of the basement 3 months ago in her home unbeknownst to her and one of her 3 dogs passed away on 06 January 2016. On 01/02/16 the dog had started limping on the right leg. He daughter, who is a veterinary technician student came to the home to look at the leg and foot to determine if the dog had been injured. The dog exhibited pain in the shoulder during palpation. They bandaged the shoulder and applied ice and heat incase of an injury as the veterinary clinic was closed. On 01/03 she noticed that the dog's right eye seemed swollen and upon inspection, saw what appeared to be a blood blister on the tissue of the third eye lid and the whole top part of the eye lid. The dog was also very lethargic. At this time the owner states that she was still unaware that the rodenticide had been placed in the home at all. First thing Monday morning 01/04/16 owner brought the dog to the veterinarian. They diagnosed a large hematoma on the eye and sent home a steroid ointment to apply to the area. On 01/05/16 the whole right side of the face was swollen and the eye continued swell. Owner also noticed that there was a very soft bulge on the left side of the dog's abdomen. They rushed the dog back to the hospital. The clinic ran a CBC and blood screen and determined that the dog was anemic and suspected that she could have bee exposed to or ingested a rodenticide. They did a fine needle aspiration on the bulge on the left side abdomen and immediately the dog developed bleeding. They hospitalized the dog, placing her on IV fluids and started Vit K 1. The clinic did run a clot time and the results were more than 5 minutes prolonged. So far as the owner is aware, clinic did not attempt a transfusion. On 01/06/16 the veterinarian called owner to let her know that the dog had not made it through the night. Follow-up information obtained on 11 January 2016: There are two other dogs in the home. These were both brought to the veterinarian on 1/8/2016 to have a clotting/PTT test done. Both dogs were asymptomatic but their test results were 0.5 seconds greater than normal. To be cautious, the veterinarian prescribed both dogs 4 weeks of K1.
