Xylitol, a naturally occurring substance, is used as a sugar substitute and has gained popularity over the past decade. It's in many foods and household products, and is very harmful to dogs. 

The products below are not the whole story, but they will give you some idea of what to keep your dog away from. If you have any questions about xylitol gum and other products you may have in your home, make sure to check the ingredients and contact your vet. 

These are the xylitol products that could hurt your dog, and even be deadly.

Candies, Gum and Mints

Xylitol is a sugar alcohol. It is found naturally in some fruits (for example, berries and plums), vegetables (such as corn, mushrooms, and lettuce), oats, and even trees. In fact, it's extracted from corn fiber and birch trees.

It's been used as a sugar substitute for many years, though its popularity has increased recently due to its low glycemic index. Candy and gum are just some of the items it can be found in.
