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

1-46587303 - The reporter, a pet owner, indicated her dog may have been exposed to a rodenticide containing the active ingredient diphacinone (present in free form or as sodium salt). An unknown number of days before the day of initial contact with the registrant, the reporter thinks her 20-pound, 12-week-old, male, Labrador Retriever dog got into some of the product, but she did not witness an exposure. On the day of initial contact, the dog was groggy, shaking, urinating everywhere and unable to stand. The reporter was advised to get immediate veterinary attention for the dog even though some of the symptoms are not hallmarks of ingestion of the product. On follow-up call one day later, the reporter indicated the dog died on the day of initial contact and that veterinary care was not sought. The reporter indicated that the dog might have been bitten by something where it lives outdoors. No additional information is available.
