Default Help grapes!

yesterday my daughter dropped a grape while running to her room and padme ate half of it. my husband noticed and said something but didn't know it was toxic so I jumped up to get it and half was left on the floor. she didn't vomit or act funny she's been eating and drinking playing and sleeping but I noticed this morning she had a bit of diarrhea and she seems a little bit more bloated than usual. I called the animal hospital and they said she should be fine but watch for vomittiny and call back if she started. has anyone else had this experience? if so what happened? she just ate a whole bowl of formula soaked puppy chow payee outside a bit and is now sleeping I'm just really worried bc I already lost one chi this year does anyone have any advice as to what to look out for or has had a similar experience? I'd say she's about 1-2lbs

It will pass. Yes, grapes are toxic. But half a grape will do exactly that - make her bloated with diarrhea. I have had this happen in the past to my last dog on occasion as I ran a home daycare and every once in a while she would find an errant grape.

okay great thank you! I've been keeping an extra keen eye on her and she had another bowel movement and it wasn't diarrhea so I think she's feeling better shes been active alot too a little grumpy though. when my daughter would pick her up and try to play with her shed start growling a bit and got snappy its not the first time, she did it once before in the car when she wanted down from my daughters booster/car seat but my daughter tried to get her to stay she she started growling and snapped and bit her hand. her father was very temperamental and didn't like people so I'm trying to make sure she's more tolerable bc I don't want a bigger problem later she's only about two months old right now so it's not bad but I feel if I don't nip it in the bud it'll be more serious later. I'm thinking today she just wanted to sleep and my daughter wanted to play so I hid her and she's sleeping now.

Dogs really do 'speak' to us, IF we listen. When your puppy growls or snarls, then she is telling you/daughter that she is uncomfortable in what you want her to do. That said, you should never give in, if it is a reasonable request. If for example you want her off the chair/sofa/bed, she should be able to protest, but she does get down. Just do what has to be done. If she tries to bite, then I'd put her in a time out. Put her in her pen to cool off, or her crate for 5 minutes. Don't scold, just do it. Your daughter has to learn that a baby of any kind sleeps a LOT. When she goes to play with her, and the puppy is tired, then problems will come up. You will have to see that your daughter doesn't interupt any sleeping, or tired/getting ready to sleep activity.

I agree. If she is growling when your daughter is holding her then your daughter needs to let her get down. Kids have to be taught how to handle these tiny dogs. Now if it is food aggression or she is snarling or biting for no good reason, then it is time for a timeout for the dog.

Half a grape will be ok. Just keep an eye on her!

I need all the prayers padme can get. my husband just rushed her to the vet she suddenly started acting weird whining not being very steady on her hind legs. I know the grape can take three days to show symptoms but she was acting fine yesterday only had diarrhea once and playful I can't believe I didn't take her just to be sure. I can't lose another one I just can't please pray for her please pray for healing and pray the vet works with us we don't have money to pay a large expense at once but I'll make payments for the rest of my life if it saves her please just pray this all works out and she comes home healthy to us my family can't go through this again it's only been months since we lost pongo I can't do it again.

Praying! I will be shocked if this is because of the grape. Maybe low blood sugar? The vet will help. Please keep us updated. Stay strong, Padme!

yea started thinking low blood sugar as well bc of how she was walking. they ended up saying her blood sugar was normal and they didn't think it was from the grape they did a Parvo test which came back negative then they tested for worms and she had hookworms even though she'd already been treated for hookworms and round works and she didn't have any of the symptoms either no bloating or anything. they said they think she was acting sick of the worms but I don't know how she could go from perfectly fine yesterday to acting this weird today I thought she was dying! they have her a high calorie food and another dose of pyrantel for tomorrow. she's been sleeping since she got home still has no appetite has only got up once to walk and lay somewhere else I took her out she peed and laid down outside to go back to sleep afterwards and I brought her in and sure enough she laid back down to go to sleep once inside. she did seem a little bit more alert than earlier and is walking better I just think how fast she declined is odd. I saw that in humans pyrantel caused drowsiness and loss of appetite so I'm assuming it is the same in her by I'm thinking it around 3-4 hours if she still hasn't eaten I might have to make her with a medicine syringe and her formula if she won't eat the royal canin they have her. do you guys think its just worms making her act so odd?
