My Dog Poppy loves Grapes and apparently it's not that unusual. I realized how much she liked them when I was eating some myself, one dropped on the floor and she dived on it and ate it, I thought it would have just been a one off so offered her another one and she took it. Now every time i eat them I let her have one too. I spoke to some of my friends about it and a few of their dogs like to eat them too. Does your Dog like any strange foods?

Don't do that again! Grapes and raisins are toxic to dogs. Your dogs can have a kidney failure if you continue to feed him grapes. Do a search on the Internet to find about this toxic substance they contain. There are many other toxic foods for dogs among human foods. Here's a list with the foods you should never feed your dog: http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?c=2+1659&aid=1030

Thanks for the info, I have looked into it before and it does say that Dogs can eat them, but should only be given in a very limited amount. She only has about 1 a month and sometimes less then that.

It doesn't count how often you gave her grapes. What's important is the toxin substance gets into her blood and it can kill her. You can't know when this will happen so you better don't give her grapes at all, to be sure you don't take any risk. That's what I'd do with my dog.

The love of grapes is interesting. My dog Mila likes vegetables: cooked cabage, carrot, peas. My other dog Fig likes bread and pasta. I tried and she picked the bread over a dog-snack, it's interesting.

Bread is definitely a strange one, very interesting indeed.

i used to feed my dog grapes too but i learned that it can damage his kidneys and so i stopped it. my dog loves to eat ice cream but we never give him the chocolate flavor because it is not good. he also likes to eat biscuits maybe because he knows that his owner does too

Yes there are toxins in the skin of the Grape, that can be harmful to Dogs, but they can eat them only very few and not very often. My Dod likes biscuits too, I think she would easily eat a full packet if I let her.

Good thing you now know that grapes are harmful to dogs a simple tip for pet owners is research first before you try to feed something to your dog. Grapes are harmful to dogs and so are different things like chocolate for example. be a responsible owner :)

That's so interesting that your dog loves eating grapes. Perhaps she is the unique dog which eats grapes:) I think it is good for her because the fruits are healthy food for everyone. I love China
