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

An unspecified time post administration, in 2012, the dog exhibited hypersalivation, vomited once and was lethargic. It is unknown if she was examined or treated by a veterinarian. On an unknown date post onset, in approximately 2012, the hypersalivation and lethargy resolved. On an unknown date in approximately 2016, the dog passed away. A necropsy was not performed. The reporting party was not calling to report the death of the dog but mentioned during the initial reaction report. No further information expected. Case closed.

To be determined by Registrant

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


19. Provide supplemental information here

Reported hypersalivation and vomiting are rather unspecific signs and may have multiple potential other causes. No oral uptake reported. Lethargy might be a consequence of reported vomiting. No time to onset reported. Death is not expected in a dog after product application, as it is inconsistent with pharmacotoxicological product profile. Other causes should be considered, however no necropsy was performed. Actually, the reporting party was not calling to report the death of the dog but mentioned regarding the same during the initial reaction report. Finally, even though time to onset is exceptionally long (4 years) for reported death, considering lack of information as no necropsy was performed, a product connection is unassessable.
