Hello again and thanks for waiting. I have worked out an answer for you below ... 1. Good news! : While grapes in quantity can be toxic to dogs just one grape is well below the toxic level even for a small puppy like yours. 2. The reason I say this is that the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center studies suggest that the lowest documented toxic dose was 10 to 12 grapes in a 20 pound dog. Which works out at around 10 grapes in your case.You can check this information HERE Your Beagle pup should be just fine , there are no special measures you need take in this sort of situation. I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.
