A reaction to accidentally ingested product cannot be excluded. Vocalization is an unspecific sign and may have various other causes. Respiratory arrest is neither expected nor inline with products pharmaco-toxicological profile. Death is inconsistent with pharmaco-toxicological product profile and experience. Product has wide margin of safety. Oral LD50 in rat is 642 mg/kg BW. 24-fold overdosage tolerated by cats without showing any side effect. Time to onset is short for vomiting however bit long for other signs. Considering all aspects, product relation is unassessable.
