He is not stable on his legs he is about 70 lbs and very strong so seeing him unstable is worrisome

He is not walking well , it is muscle control that is affected What canwe give him to counter this

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No obvious pain. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

You are not listening , no wounds

Charlie , what does that matter

this is not a situation where you can try to treat this on your own. He needs to go into a veterinarian and be treated. Diesel fuel ingestion could be life threatening depending upon how much he ingested. Because diesel is such a strong chemical this is not a situation where we want to induce vomiting.

If he vomits and then aspirates and gets the chemical into his lungs as a could cause a severe chemical pneumonia. He really should be taken to a veterinarian and be treated as soon as possible. Do you have a veterinarian close by?
