Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Grape Toxicity

Many pet owners may not be aware that grapes and raisins are fairly toxic to pets. It is still undetermined what exactly causes grapes to be so dangerous. The first signs of grape ingestion are vomiting and diarrhea, loss of appetite and weakness. Grape poisoning can ultimately lead to renal failure.

This week’s featured claim is for not one, but two dogs in the same household that got into some grapes and had to go to the vet! Treatment for grape toxicity included induced vomiting, charcoal pills to absorb the toxins, and IV fluids for both dogs.
