2. Is your Bulldog showing any odd symptoms at present ?

Hello again

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. It is encouraging that he is not showing any adverse symptoms at present. While dogs are more susceptible to alcohol toxicity than humans with a smaller amount such as you mention the chances are that you will only see minor symptoms { If any } such as lethargy plus some degree of incoordination and perhaps vomiting. Should this occur then most dogs will just sleep it off, but of course if more serious symptoms should occur you should take your dog to an ER vet without delay.

2. Given the above the chances are that you will be taking very little risk in just observing him for present but if you want to take every possible precaution then one of the best things you can do in this sort of situation is to make your dog sick immediately and try recover the Sangria that way. If you can do this within the first hour after ingestion then things should be OK. For the sake of speed I will give you a link on how to do this best should you want to go down this route : LINK

3. But in any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if your Bulldog's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
