Investigation underway after meatball with anti-freeze sends dog to vet
The search is still on for the person responsible, the ACS says
SAN ANTONIO – One pet owner, north of downtown San Antonio, had quite the scare.
The search is on for the person behind a contaminated treat that ended up sending a dog to the vet.
Animal Care Services confirms the case happened in the Monte Vista neighborhood.
The search for the person responsible started last week.
A homeowner told investigators someone threw a meatball into her yard and one of her dogs consumed it.
The dog is OK, but test results revealed the meatball contained anti-freeze.
ACS said it is illegal and potentially a felony to give or make a poisonous substance available to an animal.
