No! Vodka is for adult humans only! Alcohol is highly dangerous for dogs, even in limited amounts. Hard liquor is especially harsh on your pet’s system. Just like humans, dogs can experience alcohol poisoning, and their smaller size makes them all the more susceptible. If your dog gets a sample of your martini, call your vet immediately. She may need IV treatment, rehydration measures, and close monitoring.
