Taken from a veterinarian's site:

Quote:
There appears to be no dose response, and toxic doses have been reported to be as low as 0.7 oz grapes/kg bw and 0.11 oz raisins/kg bw.
Your dog is around 18 kg, so it would've had to eat 13 oz of grapes for the lowest toxic dose...you're in the clear!

I would say if she was going to have a severe/grape toxicity reaction, it would be evident pretty quickly. I don't know if I necessarily believe that there is a true set amount, I think alot depends on the dog...kind of like some dogs can eat a whole bag of hershey's kisses and be fine and another may get sick from just one. I am not saying that it's a fact, just that I wouldn't test the amount theory...just to err on the side of caution I guess.

she will be fine
my moms dogs live on a vineyard and are always fine. My moms cocker spaniel is a grape machine ...there is no way to monitor vineyard dogs.
cody never eats the grapes. He steals them from the other dogs and then spits them out whole

I think it's more about how much they eat more then the actual contact w/ the particular food

I agree w turtle

I don't understand this. I have two dogs that have eaten grapes all their lives. I never heard until recently that grapes were bad for them.

We had extensive grapevines at our house, mostly Concord, some whites. Anytime they were outside with me they'd eat the grapes off the vines. I've always shared my green grapes with my Golden. He loves fruit.

I've never seen any adverse reactions. I knew about chocolate, onions, etc., but I'd never heard this about grapes.

same here. We have muscadines , isons, cynitians and nortons. All have been consumed and all dogs are fine.
I then wonder if it is the amount of grapes consumed but my moms daisy dog has ruled that out or she has a rock of a tummy

I think it's a relatively new finding and it depends a lot on the dog. I would think if your dog is fine, then there's no problem. However, they can it can lead to renal failure...but who knows really.

As far as chocolate goes, a former dog of mine once ate three entire boxes of See's candy and was fine. She slept for the whole day and snored like a pig, but she was fine.

This is the same dog that ate two whole turkey carcasses out of the trash and it didn't phase her one bit (despite the fact that everyone says bird bones are bad for dogs...)

Some dogs just have cast-iron guts I guess.
