Hi JaCustomer,

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is Jane. I have been involved professionally with dogs in the healthcare and behavioral fields for over 20 years. I’ve worked as a Vet Assistant and Behaviorist and have extensive experience in dog reproduction, as a breeder, for even longer than that.. Canine behavioral issues and training are also my specialties. It will be my pleasure to work with you today.

Raisins and grapes are bad for dogs. And dogs that have consumed large quantities of grapes have developed kidney failure. Here is a link to a site, which talks about this.

https://www.merckvetmanual.com/toxicology/food-hazards/raisins-and-grapes

The ASPCA study showed that as little as .15-.32 ounces per pound could have a toxic response. A single grape is often about .2 ounces each. You can read more on this here:

http://aspcapro.org/sites/pro/files/q_0.pdf

Treatment is frequently I.V. fluids at 1 ½ times the maintenance amount and monitoring the kidney values for a few days. Since most goldens are fairly large dogs, I do not anticipate much of a problem with your dog but she is older and every dog is different so I would watch for signs of kidney issues such as increased thirst and urination, vomiting and lethargy. If you see any of those symptoms, I'd have Marley seen immediately. It certainly wouldn't hurt to have a senior check up on her anyway early in the coming week.

I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you. Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen ( rating me now does not close your question). We can continue here until you are satisfied, simply use the reply box and let me know. Thank you!
