My Bluehealer drank gallons of BD with no ill affects. I have taken a sip an had no problems. There was a picture of Darrel Hanna drinking BD on line.

Its only if its fresh from reaction and still has methanol in it that might present a problem. Dogs don't usually have a lot of body weight, so the 1-2mL/kg of body weight for a median lethal dose of methanol doesn't require that much.

Isn't it the case that methanol is only poisonous to primates?

No,

quote:
When ingested by dogs and cats, methanol poisoning shows similar signs to ethanol (e.g., alcohol) poisoning, and can cause lethargy, walking drunk, vomiting, a low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), and central nervous system depression. In severe cases, a low blood pressure, respiratory failure, and seizures can occur.


But it does look like the lethal dose is probably greater;

quote:
For cats and dogs, methanol is the least toxic of the ingredients [of windshield washer fluid], however, it is very toxic to humans...The toxic dose in dogs is 3.6 gm/lb; the toxic dose in cats has not been determined. If only a small amount is ingested, only mild gastric upset is seen.


"Mild gastric upset"...so, maybe, expect some loose stools from the puppy if there was some methanol in there.
