FDA Warning

Xylitol sweetener shown to kill if consumed by dogs

The FDA has issued a consumer warning entitled "Xylitol and Your Dog: Danger, Paws Off," which warns that xylitol can be fatal to dogs. The substance is quickly absorbed into their bloodstreams, triggering a sudden and fast release of insulin from their pancreases which causes their blood sugar levels to drop to dangerously low levels.
