Antifreeze and Animals
"Most automotive antifreeze (usually colored green with a sweetish taste) is a chemical called ethyleneglycol or more properly 1,2,ethanediol. This is a ethane (part of natural gas) reacted to form a double alcohol. Bottom line is that it is sweet, toxic, chemically fairly stable and mildly flammable. There is nothing you can treat it with at home that is not as toxic as the antifreeze itself.

Antifreeze is not as volatile as gasoline or regular alcohol which means it won't blow up when ignited but it will burn. If you have a small spill, soaking it up with clay cat litter and landfilling the contaminated cat litter is probably the best bet. A larger spill should be handled by a professional.

If it has soaked into the garage floor or driveway, the impacted area can be cleaned by adding something really unpleasant tasting such as lysol or other strong scented or bad flavored solution. Ethylene glycol will mix with water. If the concrete is already stained with oils, then gasoline, kerosene, diesel fuel, etc.can be CAREFULLY AND SPARINGLY used to "float" it out of the concrete so you can soak more of it up with the cat litter. Once the spot is as clean as you can get it, a solution of laundry detergent and water will work to finish the clean up.

By the way, do not dispose of antifreeze by dumping it down the drain. It kills the critters at the sewage treatment plant as well as it does dogs and cats. Flushing it into a septic system will kill the septic system dead-most in a big hurry. Besides which, it then moves on to pollute the groundwater.

If the antifreeze has soaked into the soil, I would recommend digging it up, bagging it and landfilling it. Don't try to burn off the antifreeze contaminated soil. There is too much water and other junk in it and it will stink up the entire neighborhood - if you can get it to light at all."

Bloat First Aid

"The procedures in this document should be used to provide first aid only to dogs in a bloat condition. They are not intended to replace prompt, professional treatment by a qualified veterinarian. Please read and understand these instructions completely before attempting the first aid procedures described herein."

Bloat Research Program

"The study is intended to evaluate (a) the incidence of bloat in each participating breed; (b) the relationship between body conformation and bloat risk in individual dogs within a breed; (c) the influence of family history of bloat on bloat risk; and (d) whether diet and personality characteristics are predisposing factors for bloat. Dogs are measured and enrolled at a show. Then the owner completes a Current Status and History Questionnaire to provide baseline information about the dogís diet, temperament, etc., and the dogís health status is followed over time to see which dogs bloat and which remain bloat-free."

RESCUE RESOURCES

CUR (Canine Underground Railroad)

Started in 1991, CUR (Canine Underground Railroad) is one of many Internet rescue transport groups that assist in moving rescued dogs from shelters to rescue groups, from rescue groups to fosters and from fosters to their new adoptive homes. The CUR mailing list is owned by Bill Gorman and managed by Peg Banks. Membership in CUR is by referral from two current members. This is to protect the safety of dogs and people alike by keeping anonymous lurkers from reviewing details of dogs moving through their areas, or the times and places where runners may meet. However, CUR cooperates with many other groups and non-CUR individuals--in pooling resources, more dogs and adoptive families may benefit. To join, contact a CUR member you know personally and inquire about joining. To request transport assistance, contact any CUR member.

snips's goal is for every dog or cat to enjoy a long, happy, healthy life by his human companion's side, and for every human companion to know that special loving bond a cat or dog can bring to her life."
