My dog ate some black grapes 36 hours ago she fine but now at 3am she is panting, what does this mean?

Dr. Michael Salkin is typing. Please be patient.

How much does your dog weigh, please? 3 grapes won't intoxicate a dog weighing more 4.5 kg.

It’s 4 hours until local vet opens. Could she die before then?

How much does your dog weigh, please? 3 grapes won't intoxicate a dog weighing more than 4.5 kg.

I see in a newer post of yours that she weighs 20 kg. She wasn't intoxicated by grapes. Panting usually indicates anxiety or pain. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

Excessive panting can indicate not only anxiety or pain but also elevated ambient temperature or exercise. To confound the diagnosis further, it's also seen with fever, narcotic administration, glucocorticosteroid (e.g., prednisone) therapy, Cushing's disease, hyperthyroidism, hypocalcemia, pheochromocytoma (an adrenal gland tumor), cardiopulmonary disease, tachyarrhythmias (fast irregular heart rates), brain disease and obesity.

Ok thanks for the reassurance.
