    Nope. As yet unknown what the toxic compound in the raisin is, or how it works.
    However, does seem to be an idiosyncratic problem, only individual dogs are affected, but as we don't know who will be affected and who won't, recommend all dogs not eat them.

    How is raw fish toxic? I have fed my dogs raw fish on many occasions after catching bait for my trotlines and they never had any ill effect.

    Our first golden back in the 80's we fed grapes and raisens a lot. After dialysis several times he died of kidney failure. He was only 7. Back then the word wasn't out on grapes. I believe this is what caused the kidney problem. He was an awesome hunting dog out of Funky Farquar. His life was cut way to short. I went through 2 that were not near as good at hunting but am lucky now to have one that reminds me a lot of him.

    Me& my is correct. Grapes and raisins contain an unknown toxin which damages the kidneys.

    Feeding raw fish can result in a thiamine (B vitamin) deficiency leading to a loss of appetite, seizures, and in severe cases death.

    well guess im going to have to fence off the grape vine this summer. thanks for the heads up, my yellow lab loves them and would walk up to the vine and eat the low hanging ones.

    how about figs?

    Do a "tobacco" search at the site listed in the first post.

    Also, people in the Northwestern US should be aware of salmon poisoning. I know people who have lost dogs to it.
