Two days before the day of initial contact with the registrant, the reporter applied the product to his lawn. On the day of initial contact, the reporters 11-year-old, 42-pound, female Brittany Spaniel dog had access to the treated lawn and might have licked her feet afterwards. Approximately three hours after the exposure, the dog developed vomiting. The reporter was advised that the product has a low level of toxicity and minor gastrointestinal upset might occur. If the symptom persists, veterinary evaluation should be sought. On routine follow-up call three days later, the reporter could not be reached. No additional information is available.
