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

1-24924130: The reporter, a pet owner, called on 12/9/10 indicating her 10 year old female American bulldog may have been exposed to a pesticide containing the active ingredient metaldehyde. The pet owner stated her dog got into a box of the product, which had accidentally been left on the patio. She may have ingested ┐ to 1 cup of product sometime during the evening on 12/8. The dog was asymptomatic when she was placed in her pen at 10 pm; however, when the owner went to let the dog outside the morning of 12/9 she found the dog was tremoring and seizuring. The dog was immediately taken to a veterinary clinic, where she was hospitalized. At the time of the call, the dog had also vomited, was comatose/unresponsive, was still having tremors and seizures, and had a fever. The veterinarian had given the dog a 50:50 chance of survival. During the call the reporter requested additional information about the product. The safety profile of the product was discussed, including symptoms and treatment for acute exposures. Recommendations were made to be sure and monitor the dog┐s liver values, since dogs surviving the acute phase may develop liver damage several days after exposure. A follow-up call on 12/10/10 revealed that the dog had died. The owner did not indicate whether the dog died on her own or was euthanized. No further information is available.
