Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am so sorry to hear about your situation. Ingestion of antifreeze is an emergency situation. If you are at home and he is still acting normally and you have 3% hydrogen peroxide, I would recommend inducing vomiting and then immediately going to the nearest emergency clinic. Do you have peroxide at home? How much does your dog weigh?

My dad gave him an antibiotic! Some kind of sulphur??? I think he has parvo!!he has diarrhea?? Hes vomiting!
Expert:  Jess K replied 1 year ago.

Ok... so he is acting sick and you are worried it could have been antifreeze then, not that you just saw him ingest it?

How long has this been going on?

How old is he?

Has he had any vaccinations?

How many times has he vomited?

It appears you are not online right now, and I am headed off for the night. I will open your question back up in case someone else is online later when you are available.
