Dog Drinks Anti-Freeze – Vodka IV Saves Him. [Video]

Charlie the Maltese terrier is a lucky pup. From Arbroath:

“The curious canine was rushed to the Animal Accident & Emergency hospital, having licked some coolant in his owner Jacinta Rosewarne’s garage at Melton, west of Melbourne, Australia.

Vets realised Charlie had ethylene glycol poisoning, which can cause kidney failure within hours and, left untreated, leads to death. So they grabbed a bottle of vodka and started feeding it to Charlie through a tube down his nose and then intravenously.

I thought it was hilarious … It was distressing but funny at the same time.’ Charlie had 700ml of vodka in two days, a miracle treatment which saved his life but left him with an almighty hangover.”

Is it just me or does the idea of a booze IV sound awesome? You can control the drip speed and amount you drink plus, you can IV the bottom shelf booze. Moving on – good for Charlie; he got drunk to get better. [Arbroath]
