Customer Question
How does any ingestion...

How does any ingestion of phenothrin, pyrioxyfen and piperonyl butoxide affect an 8 pound dog?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with the dog?

Nothing but he licked where I had sprayed as some got on him when I sprayed sofa and before I could wash it off he had licked there

Veterinarian's Assistant: The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?

Kare Bear and he is 9 months old

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

KB short for Kare Bear

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about KB?

No - he just licked it maybe five to ten minutes ago

Only the pyrethroid phenothrin is of concern. If ingested in sufficient amount vomiting, agitation, and tremor can arise. It's unlikely that such a casual exposure as you mentioned would cause any more than transient gastrointestinal distress - inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea - if any adverse symptoms at all. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
