my Lab ate one grape. he is six years old and in good health. what should I do, please?

Dogdoc4u :

Welcome to the chat!! I am Dr. Altman, a licensed veterinarian and happy to answer your questions today.

Dogdoc4u :

The good news is that one grape in a dog Tackla's size is of no concern for issues with kidney disease

Dogdoc4u :

Even a 5 pound dog can have one grape without issue and would require 3-4 grapes to cause any concern

Customer:

Great, thanks. so if he had 3-4, what would you suggest, pleasE?

Customer:

he weighs approx 65-70 llbs

Dogdoc4u :

For an average 60 pound Labrador this would not be a concern. My example was for a 5 pound dog I would suggest inducing vomiting if it was within an hour but for a large breed dog it would take quite a bit more to be an issue

Dogdoc4u :

Yes, it would take a 10+ in a dog of her size

Customer:

got it. thanks so much!

Dogdoc4u :

You are very welcome

Dogdoc4u :

Can I assist with any additional questions today?

Customer:

no, thank you. have a good Labor Day

Customer:

bye

Dogdoc4u :

You as well :)
