A puppy suffering from kidney failure was nursed back to health by a vodka drip.

The nine-week-old pup got sick when she licked anti-freeze off a car part.

When her owners took her to the vet, they found out the only cure for that type of poisoning was pure alcohol.

The vodka was fed via a drip through her nose and into her stomach.

Over two days, the pup consumed more than a third of the bottle.

She’s doing a lot better.
