On an unknown date post application, in approximately 2016, the canine was diagnosed with vestibular disease. On an unknown date, in approximately 2016, the canine died. No known necropsy was performed. No more information is expected. The case is closed. Limited information was provided at the time of the call. Due to the sensitive nature of the communication, specific relevant details were not obtained or will not be sought from reporting party. The initial call was to discuss product use on another animal and not to report the death of this dog.


To be determined by Registrant

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

Death

19. Provide supplemental information here

O - Unclassifiable/unassessable Reported vestibular syndrome and death are not expected after product application as inconsistent with pharmaco-toxicological profile of the product. Moreover, time for reporting is too long (2 Years) as the intent of the phone call to Bayer was to discuss product use on another pet and not to report the death in this event. No signs of allergy/anaphylactic reaction reported. Even though time to onset is unknown, occurrence of sign within window of allergic/anaphylactic reaction (within 1 day) unlikely, as would have been reported in close proximity. Other causes should be considered. Considering very low level of information (time to onset, age, concomitant medical history and necropsy details are not available) and overall aspects, a product connection is unassessable.
