17. Provide any additional details about the incident

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

On an unspecified date post application, in approximately Dec 2015, the dog died. It is not known if a necropsy was performed. Due to the sensitive nature of the communication, specific relevant details were not obtained, nor will such be sought. The reason for the initial call was to discuss use of the product on other pets and not to report the death of the dog. No further information is expected. This 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. The information regarding the death of the dog was casually provided during an inquiry as the reporting party did not contact Bayer Animal Health to report the death of the animal but to discuss use of the product on other pets. Overall, even though, the level of information is very low, considering known safety profile of the product, product relation is unlikely.
