How much does your dog weigh?
Bailey's is a 12-year-old Dachshund who is a overweight at about 15 pounds.

How much and what type of alcohol did he drink?
She probably drank about 1/4 of a glass of your standard run & coke drink.

Right now she is walking with a wobble. She continues to trip on her rear legs, but can still walk once she fixes them. She will just let you lay her down any which way you want on a bed, which she usually doesn't let anyone do. She appears lost, looking around at things throughout the room. Right now she is sleeping because she is on a bed, but if I remove her from the bed she is alert and keeps walking around, but a little "tipsy".

She consumed the alcohol probably about 10 minutes ago.

Alcohol is toxic to dogs and can result in a fatality in this amount at your dogs weight.

She needs to be seen by a veterinarian for monitoring and treatment. Please have her seen.


I know this isn't my normal detailed answer but I don't want to take up anymore necessary time for her to receive treatment. I will be more than willing to discuss issues further after she has seen the veterinarian if you need more assistance.
