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

1-46621959 - The reporter, a pet owner, indicated his dogs were exposed to an insecticidal shampoo product containing the active ingredients piperonyl butoxide, pyrethrins, and N-octyl bicycloheptene dicarboximide. Approximately three weeks before the day of initial contact with the registrant, the reporter used the product to bathe his two 3.5-year-old, male, Chihuahua dogs of unknown weights. The reporter indicated for two days after the bath, the dogs were itching and licking at their skin, and their skin became dry, red, irritated, and they experienced hair loss. It is unclear if the dogs were still experiencing the symptoms at the time of initial contact. The reporter was advised to bathe the dogs and to get veterinary care if the symptoms persisted. No follow-up was done. No additional information is available.
