Hi,

My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that your dog ate grapes. Are you certain that he ate ONLY two grapes? Were you able to induce vomiting to decontaminate the stomach? How long ago were the grapes eaten?

Typically 2 grapes is not considered a toxic dose of grapes, but we still recommend inducing vomiting and giving activated charcoal afterwards just to be sure.

Please let me know the answers to the above questions so that we can come up with a treatment plan for your dog this evening.

Hi,

How is your pup this evening? Did you end up taking her to the vet the other night?

Do you have any more questions for me?
