Nothing! I don't consider grape toxicity (kidney damage) unless at least 7.7 grapes per kg of bodyweight had been ingested. Rodney will remain safe. There's no need to induce emesis nor treat in any manner.

Please respond with additional questions and concerns if you wish.

Phew thank you

You're welcome. That should have been 7.7 grapes per 4.5 kg but no matter, Rodney wasn't poisoned.
