19. Provide supplemental information here

Death is not expected after product application, as inconsistent with pharmaco-toxicological product profile. Product has wide margin of safety. Oral LD50 in rat is 642 mg/kg BW. 24-fold overdosage tolerated by cats without showing any side effect. No further signs or signs of anaphylaxis reported. Contact with other product rather timely connected with event. Even though some information missing (medical history and necropsy not available) considering known product profile and safety of the product a connection to the event is unlikely.
