    Came across this on FB (I know, not usually the most reliable of sources!) and it seems to shed some light on the whole grape problem, although obviously lacking in detail.

    I actually dreamed earlier that I had completely forgotten grapes were toxic and had given Jack half a dozen to eat, before realising.

    I woke up in a panic! :eek:

    Ooh yes I saw this as well. As you say not the best explanation but I suppose it helps vets actually know what it is that causes it even they can't do anything about it. Although it might mean they can find something to bind to it or block the uptake pathway for long enough to get it out the system?

    I also used to feed Suzie grapes by the dozen before a leaflet came through the door from the vet with a list of foods you should never feed dogs. I was horrified when I read grapes are toxic to dogs.
