Grapes, raisins pose grave risk to dogs

Animal Health SmartBrief | Jan 20, 2017

Veterinarian John de Jong explains that grapes and raisins are toxic for dogs, causing vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, loss of appetite and irreversible kidney damage if not treated promptly. Although raisins are more potent than grapes because they are concentrated, and the toxic dose for grapes is about one-half ounce per pound of body weight, the effects can vary, so any consumption of grapes or raisins should be taken seriously, Dr. de Jong writes.
