On approximately 9 Dec 2015 the dog died. No necropsy was performed. Due to the sensitive nature of the communication, limited information was provided. The intent of the call was to discuss use of the product on another pet and not to report the death of the dog. No more information is expected. Case is closed.


To be determined by Registrant

18. Severity classification (if there is more than 1 possible classification

Death

19. Provide supplemental information here

Death is not expected after product application, as inconsistent with pharmaco-toxicological product profile. No signs of allergic/anaphylactic reaction reported in close proximity of product application. Product has wide margin of safety. Oral LD50 in rat 642 mg/kg BW. 20-fold overdosage tolerated by dogs without showing any side effect. In case of suspected product involvement, adverse event would have been reported in close proximity and not long time after. Further, the owner did not believe in product involvement either as reason for the initial call was to discuss the use of product on another pet and not to report the death of the patient. In spite of the limited information (animal details and exact time to onset unknown, absence of necropsy results), no plausible connection can be made to the product knowing the safety profile of the product and thus product involvement is deemed to be unlikely.
