Xylitol Toxicity in Dogs

Found in chewing gums and other foods, it could cause liver failure in dogs Staff Writer

Xylitol is a sweet substance found in some vegetables, fruits and hardwood trees.  It is a white powder, similar in sweetness to sugar but with half the calories and without the ill effects of sugar such as dental cavities and diabetes. 

It is found in a variety of foods geared toward diabetics and the overweight.  These include sugar-free chewing gum, candy, mouthwashes, toothpaste and pancake syrup.  It is also sold in packets and in bulk packaging similar to sugar.

Dogs that ingest large amounts of foods containing Xylitol can experience a drop in blood sugar that can lead to depression, dizziness and seizures.  Symptoms can appear within half an hour of ingestion.  It is possible that Xylitol consumption can also lead to fatal liver failure.

Xylitol appears to have many benefits for humans which, as is the case with a number of foods, has too strong an effect on dogs.  If you suspect your dog has eaten foods containing Xylitol, contact your veterinarian especially if he is showing ill effects.
