    DefaultGrapes/fruit question

    I remember awhile back reading that grapes were dangerous to dogs, but I can't remember why. Are there any other fruits we should be careful of?

    I'm not sure of what else may be toxic to dogs, other than grapes.

    I do know that apples and bananas are okay. We give these to Larry all the time, and he loves them!

    Grapes, raisins, onions, and chocolate are all no-nos for dogs.

    Shadow will eat almost any fruit or vegetable except for citrus fruit - she will not eat orange sections and I haven't bothered to try her with grapefruit, lemons, or limes. She'll sit and drool while I am cutting up things like pineapple and watermelon, waiting for her pieces, or if I am eating an apple she waits for the core. : Our neighbors have a dwarf apple tree that is on the part of their lot that meets our lot - and it is not fenced. Shadow steals the apples right off the tree, and cleans up every one that falls to the ground.

    That's exactly why I needed to revisit the question. I was cutting up a pineapple yesterday and Toby was sitting there dying for a bite! So far the only fruit he hasn't liked was an orange section, and right before I gave him a grape I remembered the advice from here, so he hasn't had any of those.

    Thanks for your help!

    Most fruits are ok (except the grapes) however be aware that the pits/seeds are toxic. For instance seeds of an apple are, as well as, peach pits.

    Oh no! Why are grapes a no-no (sorry if it has been discussed before, we are new to the forum). I have never heard this before and our dog LOVES grapes. When I am eating them he can tell and he won't leave me alone. He has never had any reactions to them. He'll eat anything - any fruit, veggie, oh anything.....

    One or two grapes won't hurt him but a pound can kill him if not attended to by a vet. I'm not sure exactly what happens but I know someone on here had a very close encounter with them when their lab counter surfed a bunch off the counter.

    I also think I was told that Grapefruit was bad for them but I don't remember where I heard it from so it may not be

    I didn't realize grapes were off limits either! We've given CoCo a couple of grapes here and there, but nothing substantial. That's gonna stop now!
