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

At 12 noon the dog was found outside and couldn't walk, eyes rolled back. Owner initially believed he had been hit by a car, however, there were no external signs of trauma. The owner also reported that the dog had a seizure. On examination by a veterinarian, the dog was described as being in a stupor, had vertical nystagmus, generalized muscle tremors, hyperaesthesia on the back. The veterinarian bathed the dog and placed him on fluids. The dog did not believe the k9 advantix was responsible for the clinical signs and suspected a systemic toxicity. Blood work was performed. CBC was normal. Biochemistry showed a mild-moderate elevation in ALT. The owner declined a referral for a neuro consult. The dog was hospitalized. The dog started vomiting later that evening. The dog received ampicillin and cerenia. The next day the dog was urinary incontinent. xrays showed bladder stones. The dog was discharged on September 9th with no neurological signs. the owner declined treatment for the bladder stones and urinary incontinence.

The dog was left outside unattended for several hours. A clinical pathologist reviewed the blood work and believed the elevated liver enzymes to be pre-existing.

He also believed the uroliths and urinary incontinence to be unrelated to the K9 Advantix application.
