Trupanion Warns: Grapes and Raisins are Deadly to Cats and Dogs
Date:4/12/2010

Trupanion reminds pet owners that grapes and raisins are poisonous to dogs and cats.

(Vocus) April 12, 2010 -- Pet health insurance company, Trupanion, recently received one of its largest grape ingestion claims and reminds pet owners about the dangers of grapes. Trupanion receives claims for raisin and grape toxicity on a regular basis. About ten percent of the foreign body ingestion claims received since the beginning of the year were for grape or raisin ingestion. The average amount for grape or raisin claims was $235.63 with the largest in the amount of $1,466.83.

"Many pet owners are unaware that grapes and many other human foods are poisonous to pets. We hope to educate all pet owners so that they can prevent distress and danger to their pets as well as costly trips to the veterinarian," said Senior Vice President, Darren DeFeo.

Both cats and dogs are susceptible to grape and raisin toxicity. Acute renal failure can develop within 48 hours of ingestion. It is not known exactly what in grapes and raisins causes illness, but ingestion of either one can cause kidney failure to dogs and cats. Raisins are more concentrated than grapes, therefore contain more toxins. Trupanion has more information about grape toxicity at their pet health concerns guide.

Trupanion's goal is to spread awareness about foods that are poisonous to pets as well as the benefits of pet insurance. By preventing pets from eating dangerous substances, pet owners can save themselves and their pets heartache and stress, and cut down on costly vet bills.
