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

On an unknown date post administration in Mar-2016, the canine was examined by a veterinarian had a positive test result for lyme borreliosis, was diagnosed with renal failure, and died. It was unknown if any treatments were performed if a necropsy was performed. Due to the sensitive nature of the communication, specific relevant event details were not obtained, nor will such be sought. The reason for the initial call was to discuss another dog and was not to report the death of the patient. No more information is expected. This case is closed. Note- Previous applications well tolerated.


To be determined by Registrant

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

Death

19. Provide supplemental information here

Reported renal failure is not expected in a dog after product application, as it is inconsistent with pharmacotoxicological product profile. Sign is likely linked to diagnosed Lyme borreliosis. Death is not expected either and the geriatric dog likely died due to reported renal failure. Actually, the reason for the initial call was to discuss another dog and was not to report the death of the patient. Moreover, previous applications were well tolerated. No ticks were reported and thus unclear when the dog contracted the Borreliosis. Moreover, Borreliosis has a long incubation period (1-5 months) therefore the animal could have contracted the disease before Advantix application. Finally, though necropsy details and time to onset are unknown, overall, considering the known product profile, a product connection is deemed to be unlikely.
