Nala ate grapes!

I feel horrible because I left some grapes on the table and then rushed out of the house and Nala got onto the table and ate them.. My husband came and got me and we fed her salt. She was acting a little wierd and hyperactive before we got the salt in her. She threw up about 5-6 grapes and drank some water. She seems to be doing fine. The vet seemed to think we are okay because we got them out of her rather quickly.

It was scary and I still feel nervous. She seems okay and wants to eat dinner.

I will feel better when she is okay tomorrow.

Oh, that is scary! I keep meaning to buy some ipecac syrup to have on hand in case of something like that. I'm glad she seems okay but let us know how she is tomorrow.

I am so sorry to hear this. We all have done something at one time or another with our pups that has upset us, we are human. Hopefully you got to it right away and all will be fine. We do worrry and fell responsible no matter what, its in our nature. I have had dogs eat a grape or two and they have been fine, not so with me I was a mess for a few days. You noticed right away, took action, so you are ahead. Hope all is well tomorrow.

That's so scary! I hope she is ok. You can try hydrogen peroxide, to induce throwing up. You will have to check the dosage. I had to do it with Scudder. I gave him a tiny bit of peroxide and then pressed on his belly. He threw up within a minute.

I think I remember the peroxide being about 1 tsp. When Milo was very young, as a matter of fact, it was the night before he was scheduled to be neutered (which was postponed), he got into the dessicant from a bottle of pills. In a panic, I called the vet, whose office was about to close. They told me to give him peroxide within fifteen minutes of ingesting the dessicant. Problem was, I didn't have any in the house and had to run to the nearest drug store (legs shaking all the way) and get it for him.

I put him on the table and almost flung the peroxide at him. He licked his lips, half of it wound up on the floor and . . . nothing! I called poison control for animals and $55 later, they told me I had nothing to worry about. It wouldn't hurt him. Too small an amount to be concerned about.

And don't think I didn't think that for weeks afterward.
