Two nights ago, my Sister almost lost her dog due to Sugar Free Gum Containing "Xylitol"
Apparently this is Poisonous to Dogs, even in relatively small amounts.
Sudden death can occur from a "blood sugar crash" due to the Xylitol & a slower death can come from Liver Damage.
My sister's dog is out of the woods on the first, but it's still wait & see on the Liver Problems.
This is Not a Hoax. A web search on "dog eating sugar free gum" will lead you to tons of information
See for example: http://www.diabetesdaily.com/edelman...ol-sugar-s.php
I know that there are a lot of dog owners on this board, so spread the word.
I was amazed that I have not heard about this before!
Watch out for your kid's packs of sugar free gum left lying around.
Stride & Orbits Definitely contain Xylitol
Also, Xylitol is used in many Diabetic products like cookies & other treats, so Beware!
