"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.
"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."
"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."

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.
