In this article, we’ve put together some information about juice and whether it can make a dog sick. Let’s get started!

What is Juice?

Juice can be made from a variety of fruits and vegetables that have been pressed. The liquid that comes out is called juice. Juice is usually taken as a beverage but can also be used as an ingredient or flavoring.

Many people drink juice for their health, as the liquid contains a high number of vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals. Juices can boost the immune system, reduce the risk of certain diseases (such as heart disease), and more. Some people even drink juice to help detox their symptoms of harmful chemicals.

While drinking juice can be healthy for pet parents, what about their canine companions? Can juice make a dog sick?

Juice & Dogs

The good news is that juice is usually not toxic to dogs. While they shouldn’t drink a large amount of juice, a sip or two will not make a dog sick.

However, we must add that grape juice can be toxic to dogs. Grapes are toxic to dogs and can cause kidney problems (including kidney failure). Here, again, a sip or two of grape juice may not cause harm; however, more than that could be dangerous for a dog.

Grape Juice Toxicity in Dogs

You may notice these symptoms if your dog has drunk grape juice:

If your dog has drunk grape juice or you suspect he may have, then call the vet immediately. This is an emergency.

The good news is that dogs who receive prompt medical care for grape juice toxicity will make a full recovery. However, the key is to get the dog to the vet ASAP.

And if you’d like to add juice to your dog’s diet, please check with the vet first. They will be able to let you know if juice is a good, healthy option for your dog or not.
