Grape toxicity becomes a concern when my patient ingests 0.55 grapes per pound of body weight or 5 1/2 grapes for Tippy. Such an amount of grape is unlikely to be present in 2.5 mL of that herbal formula. It's important to recognize, too, that grape toxicity is idiosyncratic (peculiar); in other words, only a few dogs will become intoxicated after ingesting grapes. Most can eat them to their heart's content without harm. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
