Antifreeze Poisoning - dog health experiences

Antifreeze Poisoning dog experience
Dog Owner:
Location: Lawrenceburg Ky USA

My Boxer Dog, 7 years old had a sudden onset of lethargy, disorientation and vomiting starting on Saturday evening. No appetite, refusing her favorite foods. Called her Vet that night, he said to give her Pepto-Bismol, but she could not hold it down. At this time she was stil able to ambulate but would walk into corners and stare at the wall. No wagging of her tail, just lethargic. Throughout the night she vomited clear thick mucous, Early Monday am, she walked outdoors and jusy started hemorraging maroon colored stool. Respiration went to 70 per minute, unable to get up out of the grass. We assisted her to the car, drove emergently to the vet, he drew blood, she expired 10 nminutes after we arrived there. By the blood work, her kidneys had completely shut down and the vet stated that it was a classic textbook case of anti-freeze poisoning. It was non-witnessed, but our dear boxer is gone.
