Default Anti-freeze on lawn?

So when I walked outside this morning I found an empty bottle of antifreeze on my lawn. We haven't had any strong winds and I don't know how it got there. I'm worried my neighbor's grandson might have poured it on my lawn!! He isn't to fond of me, and Boss isn't very fond of him at all.

So my question is; How dangerous can this be if he ingests it?? I know anti-freeze is very harmful to pets but I'm not sure how dangerous it is in a situation like this. I am petrified to let him outside now, I don't want him getting sick!!

Any suggestions? I just am not sure what to do here!

Thanks for the help!

I would think that it would be very harmful if your pet gets it on the paws and then licks it off or tries to lick it off the lawn. That was not very nice of your neighbor's grandson. At least he left the bottle on the lawn so you could have some idea. It would have been terrible if he had not and something happened.

My friend had a schnauzer who got into a little anti-freeze and he was incredibly sick. I think she's lucky he pulled through. Is there another area you could use for potty break?

Do you really think he would do that ? I would file a police report! That's is extremely dangerous! I would not used that lawn for a while.

That's horrible! I can't believe someone would do that to anyone else, especially a neighbor!!!

I would not let the pup out of sight outside. As far as the suggestions to report your neighbour of call the police---I have to disagree. She never actually saw this person do anything , the person never did threaten to dump anti-freeze for the dog to eat. Reporting something that you imagine could have happened only makes you look like a nutter--and makes you a bad neighbour. Honestly if the bottle is empty it could have blown out of a recyling bin easy. I think if could have come from anywhere at all. Just keep your eye on that pup whilst he is outdoors .
