I just had to throw this in, it has nothing to do with grapes, although it makes me wonder why "dogs shouldn't eat grapes"....I once had a dog who grabbed an ear of corn and chowed down on it before I could stop her. I watched her closely for several days, expecting an emergency visit to the vet. Nothing happened, she was just fine. Their digestive systems dissolve things just as ours do.....
I think Al meant large quantities of grapes, rather than a specific type. Not positive though.
Dogs are not too picky about what they eat- sometimes they'll even re-eat foods that didn't agree with them. They're dogs. So it's good to know what to keep away from them.
Some popular houseplants are toxic to animals, too, like aloe, spider plants, philodendron, diefenbachia (dumbcane), and many types of ivy. Dogs & cats won't necessarily eat these, but it's good to keep an eye out in case they begin to look chewed-on.
And please don't EVER give acetaminophen (Tylenol) to a dog or cat!!
