Is there ANY way you can borrow the money from a friend or family?Also,some vet accept a payment plan.

You need to get your dog to a vet.

Here is a link...It gives you symptoms of what happens when a dog gets ahold of antifreeze.

If your dog got into antifreeze and you do nothing, the dog will die a horrible death, and that is a fact.

I don't personally know any vets who will refuse to treat a dying dog - at least try!

Isn't antifreeze fatal to both dogs and cats? Take the poor dog to a vet before it dies!!!!

At the very least call a vet and ask their opinion. No one on here is a licensed vet, we can only tell you what we have learned on our own. But we all know that these are not good signs.

While we understand that money is tight, as it is for almost everyone, some vets understnad and will work with you. But you will never know if you don't call.
