Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog?

He got out and onto something. His lower belly is hurting and is drinking a lot of weather and is winning. What can I do. I’ve been rubbing his belly for 2 hours and he is very uncomfortable

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name and age?

Pepe he is 6 cockapoo

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Pepe?

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Pepe, please? His drinking a lot of water and abdominal pain is worrisome for acute kidney injury due to ethylene glycol (antifreeze) poisoning which needs to be addressed within 8 hours of ingestion lest the kidneys suffer irreversible damage. There are other considerations with those symptoms but we can't take the chance that he didn't ingest antifreeze. I recommend having Pepe attended to by a 24 hour veterinary facility at your earliest convenience. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
