How much alcohol does it take to get a dog drunk? Here’s What to Do Next

How much does it take to get a puppy drunk?

The amount of ethanol needed to cause intoxication varies depending on its concentration in the substance ingested. The published oral lethal dose in dogs is 5.5 to 7.9 g/kg of 100% ethanol. One milliliter of ethanol is equal to 0.789 g.

The dog will usually be very wobbly, sometimes falling and completely rolling over, unable to stand back up again. The dog probably feels very dizzy and you may notice that the head is held to one side with the eyes moving from side to side or up and down.

Dogs may tend to be more attracted to fruit-based drinks, cocktails, punches, ciders, seltzers, and foods with alcohol as a key ingredient. Another serious consideration is diet alcoholic beverages or other mixers that may contain Xylitol, an artificial sweetener, which is highly dangerous for dogs; it can be fatal if consumed by dogs.
