Please don't give it a second thought. Dogs need to ingest ~0.55 grapes per pound of body weight (~ 22 grapes for Daisy) before grape toxicity is possible. This is an idiosyncratic (peculiar) poisoning; in other words, most dogs can eat grapes to their heart's content without harm. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
