1-18489464: A reporter (dog owner) called on 05/16/2009 to report the possible exposure of her dog to a slug and snail bait containing the active ingredient Metaldehyde. According to the reporter, the dog was in the treated area when he suddenly became weak, lethargic, and developed labored breathing. No actual product ingestion was witnessed. At the time of the report, the dog was at the veterinary clinic under treatment. The reporter was advised that the product is highly toxic in small amounts and may result in signs of muscle tremors, hyperthermia, depression, salivation, vomiting, diarrhea, dyspnea, tachycardia, in-coordination, ataxia, stiff gait, and seizures. The caller was advised that prompt veterinary evaluation is required in order to decontaminate and treat the signs. The attending veterinarian was in contact a short time after the initial reporter's call. The veterinarian stated that he is familiar with metaldehyde toxicity and the dog's signs are not consistent with what he has previously seen. At the time of his call, the dog was weak but did not have any muscle rigidity or muscle tremors. The veterinarian had instituted IV fluids and was ruling out other causes for the signs. Metaldehyde toxicosis and treatment were reviewed with the veterinarian. On follow up, the original reporter stated that the dog died while at the veterinary clinic. The cause for the dog's signs was not determined. No further information was obtained.
