Thank you for the information. 10 grapes should not be enough to cause kidney damage that is associated with grape ingestion. He did eat enough to cause some intestinal upset (the diarrhea) At this point this is not an emergency. What you should do is withhold any more food until the morning (water is ok). If the diarrhea continues into the morning then you should see the vet. In most cases by morning he should be just fine if the diarrhea is grape related. Dr. Dan
