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

On October 27, 2016 the the dog developed inappetence. On October 28, 2016 the dog developed lethargy. The owner then called the veterinarian. The owner then contacted the Animal Product Safety Service (APSS). The APSS veterinarian stated the risk if for coagulopathy. The APSS veterinarian also stated this is a dose of concern and is a dose that could start effecting her clotting ability. The APSS assistant also relayed the APSS veterinarian's instructions to have the owner call the clinic and see if they would be able to test the dog's clotting ability in house and if they can then we would recommend taking the dog to the veterinarian and getting her started on vitamin K1. If the owner's regular clinic cannot check in house, we would recommend he find a clinic that can. The APSS assistant provided the case and call back number and recommended having the veterinarian call for information.

19. Provide supplemental information here

The APSS veterinarian stated that the substance was considered to have a medium likelihood of causing the clinical situation. On October 28, 2016 the owner called the APSS to provide an update. The owner stated the veterinarian came to the house and examined the dog (bright, alert, responsive (BAR), running around, and there was some blood on her tail). The owner stated the veterinarian determined that the dog did get some poison, but not very much. The veterinarian gave her an injection of vitamin K and left another dose for the next day, but said she should be okay after that. The APSS veterinarian discussed that this is not the appropriate treatment for this situation. The APSS veterinarian stated that the vitamin K is needed for at least 3 weeks and if she is bleeding from an anticoagulant, she needs to be hospitalized and receive transfusions. The APSS veterinarian also stated that if that is not possible, would advise exercise restriction and by mouth (PO) vitamin K (at least 100 milligrams (mg) daily) for 3 weeks and a follow up clotting test. The APSS veterinarian again recommended having the veterinarian call the APSS. On October 30, 2016 an APSS assistant called the owner to follow up. The owner reported that the dog's signs continued and he was planning on picking up oral vitamin K from his vet that day, but the dog had died at home last night (October 29, 2016). The owner stated they had buried the dog's body at home. The APSS assistant consulted with an APSS veterinarian regarding the patient's death. A necropsy was not possible.
