Please don't be alarmed. A 70 lb dog would need to ingest approximately 38 grapes before I would even consider grape toxicity and that toxicity is idiosyncratic (peculiar) in any event; in other words, some dogs can ingest grapes to their heart's content and never be intoxicated. There's no reason to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

Hi doctor Salkin. Strange. Your first response never made it to me, but your expert advice is still good for the future. She has eaten grapes a number of times and really liked them, but now I know her potential limit. Thank you.

Agh! That upsets me. I'm sorry for this. Please contact***@******.*** for further information.
