Default Sorry - Quickie: What does antifreeze smell like? (dog-related)

My pup just came in from a run around the neighbourhood with a srtrange smell on her face, especially around her mouth.

I know antifreeze smells good to dogs (pancakes or something?) but how does it smell to people? I know, I'm worrying too much but I'm concerned. Her face smells bad, chemically...

Rapid advice appreciated.

It's very sweet... that's why they go for it.

A tiny amount wont kill you (or a decent sized dog), but a decent amount WILL kill small animals.

It won't smell "bad" that's why dogs like it.

1. Don't let your dog roam!!!

2. Getting the dog to a veterinarian is critical within the first 9-12 hours following ingestion. After that length of time, the liver will have already begun metabolizing the ethylene glycol into substances that cause kidney failure and ultimately death. I have been asked the question by several people-What should be done immediately care for my pet. Should I induce vomiting or give activated charcoal to my pet? These are very short term fixes and not a cure. The faster your pet is treated by a veterinarian the better the chances of recovery. Again, this poison is extremely toxic.

Another source of help is the National Poison Control Center, 800-548-2423. This call will cost $50.

Symptoms of antifreeze poisoning include a drunken appearance including staggering, lack of coordination, and apparent disorientation and vomiting. The animal may appear listless and depressed. Because early signs of antifreeze poisoning often mimic signs of other illness, neither you or your veterinarian may suspect antifreeze poisoning until it is too late. Fortunately, in house lab tests performed by your veterinarian by assist in the diagnosis of antifreeze toxicity.

Thanks. Really.
Her face smells like some bitter chemicals. And she's a little pitbull pup and will basically eat anything.
I'll keep an eye on her.
(I flipped out, decided to make sure it didn't taste sweet, sucked the goop from her face to taste. Hope it isn't Super AIDS)
Thanks again.

I Googled a lot trying to find out what it smells like - no joy.
As long as it smells sweet, and not bitter, we're good.
As far as her roaming, she doesn't go far usually. Just today she bolted.
We live on the beach and I think she thinks she owns it.
(Which, of course, she does)
Thanks again one and all.

Let's not even get into that.
Pitbull bites make headlines. Bites fom other breeds do not. Of course, there are nasty ones. However, they are not unsafe dogs by default, just that a lot are owned by scumbags, kept indoors, go mad, bite people. Problems also with dogs from Mexican fighting bloodlines. Just don't buy a dog from anyone dubious, check all records etc.

Don't assume he's saying the dog will attack...

People will shoot dogs that they percieve as being a threat. It's for the dogs safety as much as anybody elses...

Yeah of course, never thought.
I live in a hippy town. Everyone knows us in the area as the Englishman with the mad dog and loud car who never obeys the stop sign he believes was put there in error. (It was, there's no need for it at all. Actually no need. I has to be a mistake.)

But it's a good point, one to be aware of when I go to places where poeple buy guns.

I knew someone was gonna go there. Im not singling out pitbulls, im referring to the fact that it's a dog that is capable of doing damage. Just like a rotty, doberman, akita.... My point was, it aint no ****in' poodle.

You guys never filled your radiator? Never installed a turbo? Never opened your hood when your engine was hot?
