The Conscious Cat cares about all animals, not just those of her own species, so this is a post about a dog health issue that keeps popping up in e-mails forwarded by concerned pet owners with considerable frequency. Some pet owners think it’s true, others disregard it as yet another internet hoax. Are grapes and raisins really toxic for dogs?
Miami veterinarian Patty Khuly, VMD, is the author of a veterinary blog titled “Dolittler” which contains a wealth of pet health information you can trust. Dr. Khuly also writes a weekly pet health column for The Miami Herald and serves as regular contributor to Veterinary Economics, The Bark and Veterinary Product News in addition to her role as reporter for the Veterinary News Network.
Her blog post “Beware the Wrath of Grapes” provides accurate information on something every dog owner should be aware of.
Amber thinks dogs should know better than to want to eat grapes.
