10/5/2017 Caller reports that on 9/3/2017 someone on her neighbor's property was using the product in the yard. Caller's dog was tied out on a leash in caller's backyard. The dog barked, and caller looked outside. Caller saw 3 billows of the fog drift from the neighbor's property directly towards her dog. Caller tried to call the dog inside, and it took a minute or two to for the dog to decide to come towards the house. As he started to walk towards the house, the dog collapsed in the yard. he was able to get back up and get inside the house. Once inside, he vomited multiple times and was very weak. He collapsed again inside the house within 45 minutes. The dog was unable to get up again. He had shortness of breath at times, and kept trying to stand but was too weak. He urinated in place several times. The pet died the following day 9/4/2017 in the afternoon. Caller did offer the dog food and water, but did not administer any specific treatments. Caller spoke to the veterinarian over the phone on the morning of 9/4/2017, but did not take the dog to the veterinarian before he died. Caller does not have access to the product. She looked at the label after the incident and noted the name only. Caller's neighbor was not the one applying the product, but it was a friend of the neighbor. The dog was previously healthy and was current on vaccines. The veterinarian said the dog was overweight and was on a diet. 10/7/2017 Caller contacted her neighbor and was able to obtain product information from the can reported to have been used the day of the exposure.
