    DefaultFeeding grapes

    Just a quick note to say that our vet has told us that grapes should never be fed to a lab. Apparently they play havoc with their renal system.
    A lot of you probably already know this, but for I thought I would post it anyway for those who don't.

    We like to feed Rocksy raw vegetables and fruit rather than stuff that will make her fat - but grapes are a definite no-no from now on!

    Yep, grapes, in very small numbers, can actually cause death to any dog.

    Since my hubby doesn't frequent the lab boards, I had to stop him the other day from giving Grace a grape. When I told him the warning, he said that his parents two shelties that he grew up with (both lived to 14 and 16) ate grapes all the time. They would always give them to the dogs cuz they were funny...chewing the grapes and spitting out the skins. Are the toxins in the skins or the fruit itself? Maybe that's why it never hurt them...

    Grapes, who would've thought? I don't think an occasional grape or two will make them sick, but you just don't know where the breaking point is. Now that I know grapes are toxic, they are off limits!

    No raisins either since they are dried grapes.

    Oh no! Theo always gets a glass of Willamette Valley Pinot with his after-dinner cigar. How am I going to tell him?
