Okay, thank you.
It's too late to make her vomit, so you'll just have to ride this one out. While grapes and raisins are known to be toxic to some dogs, craisins are not. They are however, very high in sugar and that could possibly cause problems with her digestive system. She may vomit and/or have diarrhea, but probably won't experience more than that.
Dogs' digestive systems are very much like ours, with the exception of a few things like grapes, raisins, garlic, onions and Xylitol artificial sweetener, they don't usually have a problem with what we eat.
It would be a good idea to withhold food today and see how she does getting rid of all those craisins.
If you think her stomach may be upset, give her one Pepto Bismol non-chewable caplet every four hours through the day for up to four doses. Tomorrow offer several small meals of her regular diet.
Hopefully she'll come through this adventure with no serious difficulty.
If you should have further questions, please let me know.
