Antifreeze Tip

Antifreeze is a common poison. It has a sweet taste and pets will consume it readily. A little more than 3 tablespoons could be lethal for a 22 pound (10 kg) dog.

Antifreeze poisoning causes nervous systems signs and severe kidney failure. It can be fatal if not treated very soon after ingestion (within 4 to 8 hours). Pets that have ingested antifreeze may act "drunk" within 30 minutes to 12 hours after ingestion, depending on the amount ingested.
