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

Death

19. Provide supplemental information here

Death not expected in dog after product application, as inconsistent with pharmaco-toxicological product profile. The intent of the phone call to Bayer was to ask if the remaining product could be used on another dog, and not to report the death of the patient. Other etiologies are more probable e.g concomitant medical condition of cancer. No signs of allergy/anaphylactic reaction reported. Even though time to onset unknown, occurrence of sign within window of allergic/anaphylactic reaction (within 1 day) unlikely, as would have been reported in close proximity. Though some relevant information missing (time to onset, medical history), considering the products pharmaco-toxicological profile and the context of the reporting, a product connection is deemed to be unlikely.
