The dog passed away 25 days later at home. The pet owner wants us to send a msds. PCP provided 29427 100% cellulose , pet owner does not agree with what the pc msds has on it. 2/21/19; 12:24pm.

She indicates that he had left a Wilson Predator Rat & Mouse Killer product in an area where the dog could access it and ingested between a third and a half of the 60 gram bag.

Caller states that her dog's condition continued to deteriorate, the dog had been taken to the vet multiple times, but eventually died over the past weekend. Caller states her neighbor provided a PCP act number 29427 - which is cellulose. Her vet did a blood test on the dog with results for difethialone. Caller concerned that packaging does not contain information on product ingredients. She indicates that the box her neighbor had supplied for the product contains no PCP no or active ingredient information. Caller is requesting SDS be sent for the difethialone product to. 2/22/2019; case was transfered over to ASPCA to monitor out. Owner was called to continue the case review, however the call was bumped to internal DVM who spoke with the animal owner. Since the pet was taking vitamin K the DVM didn't feel that the signs were related. Vitamin K is a specific antidote and at appropriate dose is expected to prevent a coagulopathy. The caller wanted to know what happened to the dog, unfortunately an answer was not able to be provided for that question. Necropsy is pending. Outcome unknown

19. Provide supplemental information here

Based on the initial information provided, it would appear that the vet treated the animal incorrectly by administering vitamin K as an antidote for an active that was not involved in the incident. Vitamin K has been reported to have the same effect on animals as a rodenticide poisoning. The information contained in this report is based on self-reported statements provided to the registrant during telephone Interview(s). These self-reported descriptions of an incident have not been independently verified to be factually correct or complete descriptions of the incident. For that reason, information contained in this report does not and can not form the basis for a determination of whether the reported clinical effects are causally related to exposure to the product identified.
