Dog hospitalized after licking coolant

Australian dog hospitalized after licking coolant saved by drinking bottle of vodka

He must have felt a bit ruff. Charlie the Maltese terrier suffered from ethylene glycol poisoning after licking anti-freeze in Melbourne, but was saved when medics at the Animal Accident & Emergency decided to get him blind drunk.

Several years ago, my Setter/Retriever mix got into antifreeze on Christmas morning. We had no idea how long it had been since he had drank it, but it was sometime overnight. Ethylene Glycol turns the kidneys into bricks. So we called the vet and got him there pretty fast. They started IVs of pure grain alcohol on him and ran them for about 30 hours. He was a very hungover pup when we picked him up, but no damage was done and he lived another 9 years.
