17. Provide any additional details about the incident

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

On an unspecified date in May 2015, the dog was examined by veterinarian, was diagnosed with liver tumor, and died. No 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 phone call was to discuss the use of the product and not to report the death of the patient. No further information is expected. Case is closed.


To be determined by Registrant

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

Death

19. Provide supplemental information here

Reported liver tumour and death are not expected in dog after product application, as inconsistent with pharmacotoxicological product profile. Other etiologies are more probable in this geriatric dog. Moreover very long time for reporting as the intent of the phone call to Bayer was to ask if the remaining product could be used on a new pet, and not to report the death of the patient. No signs of allergy/anaphylactic reaction reported. Even though time to onset unknown, occurrence of sign within window of allergic/anaphylactic reaction (within 1 day) unlikely, as would have been reported in close proximity. Considering all aspects, a product connection is deemed to be unlikely.
