Ollie, a four-year-old English Springer Spaniel, ate gum containing xylitol at his home in Stretham, Cambridgeshire. He ate about 10 tabs of chewing gum containing Xylitol.
Ollie was taken to the vet very quickly as an emergency and was very lucky to survive.
Xylitol is being used in an increasing range of foods as an artificial sweetner. Xylitol can kill a dog!
Please check food labels carefully and if your dog eats food containing Xylitol seek vetinary advice.
