A pet does not have to drink a lot of antifreeze to be poisoned. Most brands of commercial antifreeze consist of 95 percent ethylene glycol, an extremely toxic chemical. Even a few licks of this sweet-tasting fluid can be fatal to a cat or dog. Antifreeze poisoning occurs in two stages: In the first stage, the ethylene glycol within the antifreeze causes a drunken appearance in the animal within almost 30 minutes which may continue for several hours. After passing through stage 1, the animal appears to recover. Stage 2 begin when the dog's liver begins metabolizing the ethylene glycol, changing it into more toxic substances. Within 12 to 36 hours of ingestion, these metabolites have reach such a level that the dog's kidneys stop functioning, and the animal slips into a coma.
Getting the dog to a veterinarian is critical within the first 9-12 hours following ingestion. After that length of time, the liver will have already begin metabolizing the ethylene glycol into substances that cause kidney failure and ultimately death. The faster your pet is treated by a veterinarian the better the likelihood of recovery. Again, this poison is extremely toxic.

"What should be done immediately care for my pet. Should I induce vomiting or supply activated charcoal to my pet? These are very short term fixes and not a cure. The faster your pet is treated by a veterinarian the better the likelihood of recovery. Again, this poison is extremely toxic."

As you probably know, antifreeze is impressively lethal. You are wise to RUSH your dog to the vet immediately.
His organs are slowly freezing. soon they will stop working.
Antifreeze will destroy an animal. That is one time you should definately take to 24 hr vet.
Get your *** to the vet right now!
Vet is needed NOW. Dog will vomit, deed drunk, drink excessive amounts of water. The true damage is within 2 days to the kidneys, which gone untreated as soon as possible will lead to death. Do not delay taking the dog to the emergency vet.
You are doing the right thing by bringing him to the vet. My friends had a beagle who get into it and it messed up his entire nervous system, he couldn't walk or even stand on his own, it was so upsetting, and I love animals. They didn't bother to nick the dog to Vet. That really is the best thing you can do. Good luck and I hope he's alright.
