Vodka saves dying puppy from poisoning

An Australian vet saved a dying puppy with an unlikely cure, vodka.

According to News.com.au, 10-week-old Cleo licked some antifreeze and was at risk for kidney failure. 

The owner rushed the pup to the vet who said vodka was the only cure. 

The vet had a bottle on hand, a gift, and hooked up the dog. 

She said alcohol counteracts the chemical reaction and without it, the dog would have gone into renal failure.
