A dog apparently suffering from alcohol withdrawal has been nursed back to health in the United Kingdom in what an animal welfare trust has called “a first for us”.
Coco, a two-year-old Labrador mix, was brought to Woodside Animal Rescue Trust in Plimpton, England, after her owner died earlier this year along with another dog, the trust said in a Facebook post last Tuesday.
According to the BBC, staff at the trust believe the two dogs became addicted to alcohol because their deceased owner gave up alcohol.
Staff member Kirsten Stone told the outlet, “It could be that right after, say, the owner had a drink, and they’ve just fallen asleep, and the dogs may have drunk it, but we haven’t yet.” know.” ,

The trust said Koko’s companion eventually died, but after four weeks of sedation Koko is on the mend and will soon be up for adoption.
“Canine Alcohol Withdrawal, a First for Us,” wrote Woodside Animal Rescue Trust.
He continued, “We would like to introduce you to the newest member of the Dunromin Special Care Unit, a lovely boy named Coco.” “Koko has been with us for over a month, requiring intensive care since arrival. Her story is a sad one and a testament to how important our special care unit is.”
The trust noted that Coco and the other dog began to be “very unwell” upon arrival, but a vet was on site to offer emergency care.
“Coco continued to be seriously unwell and required round-the-clock care,” the trust said. “It became clear that he was suffering from symptoms that all pointed to alcohol withdrawal.”
