Hello, my name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will try and help you as best as I can.
Please allow a few minutes for me to read your responses and for me to respond back.
A single grape can potentially lead to kidney failure in any dog. We do not know how the toxicity occurs. Because of this, I would induce vomiting. This can be done at home (via 3% hydrogen peroxide) or at the vets office via an injection.
The dose of peroxide is 1 teaspoon per 10 pounds of body weight. It should be repeated if there is no vomiting after 10 minutes. If she vomits it up, there should not be any issue and no long term side effects. If she does not vomit it up, I would head to the emergency vet to have them induce vomiting.
It can take 10-20 minutes. The dose should be repeated if there is no vomiting after 10 minutes to help try to induce the vomiting a little faster. if there is no vomiting after 20-30 minutes, she should head to the emergency vet.
You are very welcome.
Hopefully she vomits up soon.
I wish you both the best.
