The pet got up within an hour. The patient was quiet that evening but was back to herself on June 2nd. The outcome is recovered.

19. Provide supplemental information here

O - Unclassifiable/unassessable Reported collapse and uncontrolled micturition are not expected after product application as inconsistent with pharmaco-toxicological profile of the product. Other causes should be considered. Even though more expected after oral uptake, permethrin has the potential to cause slight neurological disorders e.g. lost footing and unable to get up in particular susceptible animals. Being quiet is unspecific and may have numerous other causes in a dog. Though time to onset is short, considering overall aspects, a product involvement is unassessable.
