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


19. Provide supplemental information here

O - Unclassifiable/unassessable Even though more expected after oral uptake, Permethrin has the potential to cause slight neurological disorders (e.g. twitching ) in particular susceptible animal. Though sign very unspecific and not expected, shaking may be a consequence of the uncomfortable feeling caused by the applied product. Moreover, in this case may be associated with the reported twitching. Further reported scabs are not expected after product application. The observed skin reactions may be associated with the dog's scratching at affected sites. Pruritus was not reported though. Other causes should be considered. Though time to onset is consistent for initial signs, considering long time to onset for further reported sign (2 days and more), a product connection is considered unassessable.
