Veterinarian’s quick thinking saves cat’s life

Veterinarian Sarah Kanther administered vodka intravenously to a convulsive, hypothermic 1-year-old cat found outside a tire shop after ultrasound scans showed the cat had renal damage, probably from drinking antifreeze. The same enzymes that metabolize antifreeze also break down the ethanol in vodka, and the cat is recovering, Dr. Kanther says.
