It might seem like common knowledge, but, somehow, there are still people who don't know how dangerous alcohol is for dogs.
No matter what other people are saying, experts agree: dogs' livers just aren't equipped to process alcohol like human livers do. The smallest amount is enough to give your puppy alcohol poisoning.
Beer is even worse because of the hops that it's made of.
Unfortunately, it seems that one university's fraternity house wasn't aware of the dangerous effects of beer when they held a young puppy upside down over a keg and poured beer into its mouth.
Luckily, someone got hold of the video and shared it on Twitter, hoping that the right authorities will do something about it.
And they did.
The Nassau SPCA has taken away the puppy from the owner and the University has suspended the frat house.
Scroll down to see the video and how people believe that the frat house students should be punished.
It might seem like one drop of beer won't do much harm to your puppy.Rover says that beer is actually incredibly dangerous, especially for young and small dogs.
We've all heard stories about dog owners who've shared a beer with their canine buddies without any negative effects.
But alcohol is very dangerous for dogs, even in small amounts.
The smaller the dog, the more dangerous it is for them.
It's the hops that beer is made of.
There are a few serious signs of alcohol poisoning in dogs.
The dog might even need "IV treatment, rehydration measures, and close monitoring."
A video went viral on Twitter showing two Hofstra University Alpha Epsilon Pi's students doing the unthinkable.
The party took place at the fraternity's house in Hempstead, Long Island, New York.one student was caught on video holding Buddy, a ten-month-old King Charles Cavalier, upside down over a keg, while the other poured beer into its mouth. Just wait until you see...
Buddy belonged to a twenty-one-year-old senior student who was apart of the fraternity.
Some took it as an opportunity to reflect on the University's Greek Life.

An investigation has already started at the University after the video went viral.
via: Kristina ProsciaA spokesperson for Hofstra has confirmed that, just as the University policies require, the whole fraternity house has been suspended.
"The behavior seen on the video is unacceptable and in violation of the University's Code of Community Standards," she said.
via: Kristina Proscia"The University has been in communication with Alpha Epsilon Pi International headquarters, as well as with chapter members regarding this off-campus incident."
According to them, it's not yet clear which of the students in the video is the owner.
The Nassau SPCA is also investigating the incident.
"It didn't say, 'Hey I want a beer and I want it poured down my throat,' so it's wrong."
He also said that the owner could "face a misdemeanor charge of torturing of animals."
He also hopes that whatever punishment the fraternity faces, it will help to raise better men of tomorrow.
Alpha Epsilon Pi is a Jewish college fraternity and has chapters in more than one hundred and ninety campuses across 7 countries.
Neighbors of the frat house have shared that it's not the first time that the students have caused trouble.
What's even worse is that the owner promised the SPCA that they would take Buddy to the vet and have them run a blood test on him...but he didn't
When the SPCA showed up at the frat house the first time, Buddy seemed to be healthy.
Luckily, Buddy's alcohol and liver enzyme tests also turned out to be fine.
But Nassau SPCA Det., Matthew Roper, said, "He's evidence right now, so we have to keep him safe and healthy."
