The Maltese terrier named Charlie was brought to the veterinary clinic in Melbourne, Australia after he drank antifreeze solution. Antifreeze has sweet taste but it is poisonous – when digested it causes kidney failure. 


Quick thinking doctors guessed that Charlie was ill from ethylene glycol poisoning and came up to a surprising solution – two bottles of vodka. Alcohol changes the chemical constitution of antifreeze so that it causes kidney failure no more. Charlie was given 2 bottles of vodka during two days and now he feels well.
