(eg. description of the frequency and severity of the symptoms

On May 11, 2019, the cat may have licked the product off after it was applied. About five minutes after the product was applied, the cat became symptomatic. The owner gave the cat some canned cat food. The owner then contacted the Animal Product Safety Service (APSS). The APSS technician stated that the risk is for taste reaction and gastrointestinal (GI) upset when ingested. The APSS technician recommended the owner monitor at home, monitor for GI signs, manage vomiting (if pet vomits remove food and water for 1 hour without vomit, then slowly reintroduce water), give the cat a bath (with Dawn if they think it's too low and the cat will lick it again), and to call back with questions.
