Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi there,Thanks for your question regarding your boy Bentley. I am currently typing up a response and will have something for you in the next 5 minutes.Thank you for your patience.Kind Regards,Dr E
Hi again,Thank you for your patience. Good on you for inducing vomiting so quickly here with Bentley. It sounds like you realize that grapes are toxic to dogs, and inducing vomiting was the right thing to do. It sounds as though he has vomited nearly all of these grapes. Assuming he ate 8 - 10 grapes and he potentially still has a couple of grapes in his GI tract, the good news is this is unlikely to cause an issue for your boy. The toxic dose of grapes for a 20lb dog would be around 3.6 ounces. Given Bentley has vomited up the majority of the grapes he ate, then the remainder (from what you have stipulated) wouldn't be enough to cause an issue in your boy.
He likely has some nausea after this vomiting however, so you may want to try your boy with a little pepcid. The typical dose for this type of situation is 0.25mg per pound of body weight up to twice daily. You can read more about the use of Pepcid in dogs online here: http://www.petplace.com/article/drug-library/library/over-the-counter/famotidine-pepcid
If on the other hand, you aren't sure how many grapes your boy could have ingested, please play it safe and get him seen by your local ER vet. I hope all of the above makes sense?
