With winter now upon us, it is important to be aware of ethylene glycol toxicity. The most common source of ethylene glycol toxicity is antifreeze
Ethylene glycol can affect all animals, but unfortunately outdoor cats are more susceptible due to their roaming behaviours. By the time clinical signs are evident, it is often too late for antidotal therapy to be started.
If you suspect that your pet has ingested ethylene glycol, veterinary treatment must be sought as soon as possible.
