No need to really flush it out u can if you want

U can get 50/50 any brand I just advise against anything containing dexcool very harmful stuff

And I had a cat when I was 8 that drank antifreeze and dies in my arms so it can happen. Apparently it smells like candy to animals

Are u doing this just for routine maintenance? if so then a good flush wouldn't hurt it is good to flush the system at least once a year

yeah I'm just doing it for maintenince. I'm sorry man that sucks. I would be sad if that happened to one of my animals. If it contains dexcool would it say it on the bottle in plain sight?

Dexcool is a GM thing and they wont honor warranties with out it.
