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

Death

19. Provide supplemental information here

Death is not expected following appropriate topical product application as inconsistent with products pharmacological profile. Oral exposure to the collar is not expected to cause serious signs either. No signs of anaphylaxis reported which would have occurred in close proximity to the collar application. Outcome was probably the consequence of alternative causes although not described, however numerous underlying conditions have to be considered in such a geriatric cat. Time to onset is long. The collar was tolerated well without adverse signs for several month. Considering this, product involvement is deemed unlikely.
