Effects linger for poisoned dogs

BROWNSVILLE, Ohio

Seventeen dogs poisoned with antifreeze at an Ohio family’s kennels are still showing some problems but have returned home after veterinarians used intravenous vodka to counteract the poison’s effect.

The Columbus Dispatch reports it could be a while before Licking County breeder Don Butts of Blue Ribbon Labradors knows how his dogs will be affected.

His family and veterinarians tried to help the dogs with the old-school vodka remedy. One dog died, another lost significant weight, and a third is moving slowly and having trouble breathing.

Investigators have no leads in the animals’ poisoning last week at the kennels on a rural property about 45 miles east of Columbus.

What kind of POS poisons dogs? If these animals were confined when this happened something is even more disturbing. I just don't understand how people can be so cruel to hurt an animal that isn't a problem. I hope they catch those responsible and punish them severely. Even though we live in the country we have made the decision to never leave our dog out when we are not home. These stories always bother me.
